Synapse

Synapse is a sculpture whose name evokes the way I made it.

A synapse is the point through which nerve impulses are transmitted. Similarly, the silver threads of this piece are its nerves, its communication system.

In the Ipsa technique, iron is chiseled then inlaid with silver threads. With Synapse, I experiment new ways of using silver threads: I use them to assemble plaques, one of which being a silver plaque, the other one an engraved iron plaque.
