Pins, Ruffs & epaulettes

Torso Installations

It is Inga Hamilton’s desire as a maker to explore the inherent critical thinking
and understanding of materials utilised when makers of all species make.

Through the use of readily-dismissed, low-value natural materials, such as seaweed and salt, Hamilton endeavours to produce desirable, high-value, wearable adornment. By instigating comparative discussion around her work with that of nonhuman-animal makers employing the same materials and techniques as herself, such as decorator crabs, birds or dolphins, she hopes to challenge the viewer’s concepts of value and adornment within the natural world.

Striving to enchant, her wearable art works aim to spark debate and bring about a wider consideration of thought process in making by all species. Her PhD will lead her to work with those in scientific, cultural and artistic fields and synthesise this knowledge into a non-speciest framework of understanding in making.
