Steel and cement, being materials frequently used in construction are familiar and common, taken for granted as structural necessities. Neckpieces constructed from multiple steel components show how moisture from the inclusion of cement has intentionally and severely rusted the metal, while the articulation of the steel components activate and crumble the cement. These two materials that are primarily used for their stability and durability are now presented in a state of movement and impermanence. Often overlooked, these materials are brought forward once more to exude their materiality, to show their extremities and expose their vulnerabilities; How much can steel rust? How brittle is cement? How much does it crumble?
