Larah Nott is interested exploring the area of architectural spaces within her jewellery and objects. Nott’s interest in the floor plans of Concert Halls is directly related to the miniature dimensional models she constructs. Using titanium as her primary material, Nott exploits the feather light nature of the material to create her monuments for the body.
Nott explains, “ I have been exploring and collecting floorplans and information about concert halls for the last ten years. Often seen as elitist and expensive I want to encourage and promote access to all people whatever their background, so we can all experience this wonderful immersive environment. I believe the concert hall is an excellent example of a completely immersive space, similar to a church where it has been designed for a specific purpose. This current body of works is developed from the ongoing Concert Hall series of brooches that showcase what lies beneath the structures and also to start conversations about these spaces”
