About︎


As a visual artist, Jaajr delves into the intricate connections between the self, time, and the continuous change of the universe. Through a practice-based approach that revolves around the exploration of materials and the art of making, she seeks to unravel the mysteries of existence and translate them into works that challenge the boundaries of traditional art forms.

By immersing themselves in the creative process, Jaajr's art seeks to bridge the gap between the tangible and the intangible, inviting viewers to contemplate the interconnectedness of all things and the fluid nature of the universe.

✹ Starting Making

Reflection , Eye-catching , Shinny surface , Self-image , Decorative

𓆸 These are 5 keywords that I choose to represent my idea in MA Designer Maker project I’m working on at the moment but what will I do about them? What it will turn out to be? How does the final artwork will look like?

I didn’t know yet.
 


Video of water surface I took in Japan , 2018

For now what I know is that those 5 words bring me so much excitement as it’s the first time in years that I feel like I can make something I really love with supportive professors ,resourses and friends who ready to help me any time I need.

Here, first blog ever I ever wrote. I hope I can take you through this journal together and can give you (and even myself) a clearer idea about what I’m making, my idea and my interest at the moment.

What makes such thing that such tiny such expensive?
What make people obsess with them that much?
What make me obsess with them this much?

I asked myself many times when I was working in a jewellery design company back when I was in Thailand. I sometimes spent half an hour staring at some jewellery pieces or just staring at the high polished brass jewellery display and got lost into it. I didn’t know why but It was just something I couldn't take my eyes off. What make me obsess with the shiny surface ,I later found, are  the way the light move on its surface, the way they catch my eyes and they way they enhance the wearer appearance. It’s rare and unusual in nature, It’s outstanding.  

What make shiny surface eye-catching? I also wonder, Is it because of human instint respone more to them? Is it because it represents luxury? And what else can make an eye-catching object? Vivid colour? Movement? Size? or form? I want to know more about that too.





  
High polished jewellery display 

However , as in the word 'reflection' I found that it's not only the reflection of light on shiny object that we obsess with but also the reflection of ourself in the mirror. Because it’s ourself. It represents the whole mass that carry our souls. It’s us. And what interest me more about mirror is that mirror is the first thing human being invented for observing ourself through the eye of our own. I imagine how life would be before we had mirror - we would never know how we look like in other people’s eyes.


Moreover, I'm interested in the way we subjectively see ourself as well. The way we  perceive ourself, the way we want the world to see us and alike. That’s why I want to research more on the subject of self-image.


As I said before, I don’t know yet how my project will turn out to be. But what I expect now is that I want to make a decorative object. Something that can enhance our body or the surrounded space. It might be a wearable art piece, small sculpture or both of them.

4 Objects

Here are some object I will be using as the first set of reference for my project.

 

Metal wind spinner I bought from Camdent market 
I love how simple it is. Combination between the reflection of metal plate, circular shape and spinning motion. I couldn’t take my eyes off it.



One of the vases in Sally Vases project
One of the piece I made using 3d pen, air dry clay and resin. Decorated with Chrome effect. Inspired by motobike racing subculture in Thailand - Wanz.



Sparkling earrings
Earring I designed, made from brass with rhodium plating. It reminded me of the sparkling effect I’m fascinated about at the moment 



Sea shell in British Museum
Sea shell and its uneven surface. I love how it reflect the light with organic form. Imperfection is the new perfection.
