Nu Jade (2017 - 19)

Keywords: jade, amulet, industrial waste

In Confucius’s Book of Rites, jade was described as morality, justice, truth and earthy beauty. The work of Nu Jade, created from industrial waste jade stone and motherboards, reflects on the apotropaic functions associated with materiality of jade: from notions of protection to concerns towards personal and environmental health. The Nu Jade series poses questions about environmental safety and e-waste processing.
