"Rhythm is to time what symmetry is to space."
Eugène d'Eichenthal

Choreography is all about arranging the body according to rhythm, time, symmetry and space. Contemporary dancers are gorgeous and most precise in their unique techniques, developing new modes of expression. I admire their endurance and their daily renew of postures. As a curator I communicate through contemporary jewellery like you would work with contemporary dancers: you correct and re-balance, concentrate, and use your passion to renew the recipients view.
