Subjective Embodiment: Jewellery at the boundary of the self

My research explores the role that jewellery plays in symbolically marking the boundary of the body.  By bringing ‘retired’ pieces of jewellery back into circulation, I explore the range of embodied responses that emerge. New knowledge will centre on how challenges to a cohesive and unified body can also result in non-normative performances of self, and contribute to our understanding of the theoretical construct of body boundary. Drawing as a research methodology is key to this project, with both participants and researcher using drawing to record and analyse responses.
