Barry Ace's first Doublebling neckpiece
Barry Ace
Barry Ace

Barry Ace

Regular price $1,350.00
/

Double-Sided Digital Bling (2020). This double-sided neckpiece is a first for the artist.  

One side of the medallion has a Great Lakes' style floral motif composed of hand-stitched glass beads or manidoominens which in Anishinaabemowin translates to "little energy or spirt berries". The flip side incorporates electronic components that are assembled on a circular circuit board into a floral motif. Like the glass beads, electronic components control, store and release energy, so there is a powerful simile between these two disparate entities. The wearer can choose to wear the traditional floral beaded medallion, or reverse it to wear the electronic component contemporary floral motif - a confluence between the historical and contemporary.

Rope, glass beads, antique white-heart beads, deer hide, beading thread, circuit-board, capacitors, resistors, light-emitting diodes, tin jingle cones, copper wire, horse hair, synthetic hair, rhinestones, 56 x 15 cm.

Excerpt “Otus and Ephialtes” by Anna Williams
Breaths catch
Blood pools
The brothers are consumed with a new hunger.
Practiced predators,
They split and flank.
Aim and launch.
From either side of the glade
The sing of spears cleaves the silence
Artemis leaps.
Reflected horror glints on polished blade
A mirrored death.
