An assignment in jewelry design that was supposed to end up in an object that could roll on your body, became something else for Raz Barsatie.
The objects which could not roll on a body came to have more to do with the body, than the object she made that actually could roll on someone. When watching her objects rolling the mind directly makes a connection to the animal and human. The blue object (see photo above) makes the sound of a tiny horse, whereas the movement is more one of a rather slow, clumsy and unsteady walk of a human. It is interesting how these objects cannot roll on the body but are, instead, independent bodies themselves.
