According to Wikipedia a node is a "... device that is attached to a network, and is capable of creating, receiving, or transmitting information over a communications channel...".
The Nodes Collection are hand crafted, copyrighted sculptural jewelry, designed by me, Olga Alexander in NYC. The Nodes are encased in fluorescent Plexiglas that seems to glow unlike any other resins. While they do not actively transmit anything they look as though they can! I created them while working on my art installations and wanting to replicate my larger sculptures, using the same concepts and art materials into wearable art that everyone can enjoy.
The Nodes Collection consist of sculptural forms that look like a cross between biological and architectural forms from some futuristic landscape, and this is their appeal for me as I am interested in hybrid, fictive environments and patterns. In my jewelry designs, as in my art making practice, I often interpret these abstract environments in a variety of ways and offer multiple views that play with light, color and space in such a way as to render the Nodes ethereal, alluring and transformative.
The contents of each Node is individually designed and hand painted by me, so that no two are exactly alike! The Nodes Come in six fluorescent colors too. In this way, the Nodes are more than adornment jewelry pieces, they are miniature artworks, some more painterly, others sculptural, that the wearer gets to own and re-interpret!
