Origin and Uprooting

Millions of people migrate every year leaving their homes behind seeking asylum or a better life. Being removed from ones native place leads to a deep feeling of uprooting. The endless wondering where home is and where one belongs, ones origin.

The origin of seaweed and life on Earth is the ocean. The ocean is our origin.

Each brooch is composed of two pieces of seaweed representing the dialogue and tension between change and growth.
