Rachael Colley is an interdisciplinary artist and lecturer based at Sheffield Institute of Arts, Sheffield Hallam University. Her practice-led research explores degradable organic material’s decorative features and limited lifespans, highlighting the fleeting and complex nature of human existence and the passing of time, suggesting the ultimate end that conventional jewellery circumvents through its endurance. She is currently investigating whether jewellery with a food-based element of content, when presented alongside food and tools for eating, has the potential to create a new bodily experience.
