Marisa is a contemporary jeweller and artist from Tasmania, Australia but currently lives in Norway. She undertook a residency in May 2016 to research the coastline of the east coast of Iceland. Her practice focuses on the appropriation and translation of textures and fragments, collected from walks along island shorelines. What is found is an interesting reflection on the island’s coast. Often it explores migration, plastic debris from industry, geology, marine life etc. Marisa takes the fragments and their secret narratives in the studio and translates them into wearable objects.
By doing so, she creates a collective and visual dialogue about an island, as each island is unique.
