While working with an earlier project, Regarding House no. 10, another project appeared.
The house that had been the starting point has its own history. It was built around 1890 as a part of an Epidemic hospital. It is not possible to disregard the fates and stories that have taken place here. There was the tragedy of illness and death of course, but the hospital was also known as a rewarding place to work. These aspects regarded on their own opened many entrances for ideas.
A visit to the Medical History Museum, part of the Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg, did not give so much information but was inspiring and brought new sketches. The boxes and packages for equipment and tools were fascinating. They were often just as well and nicely crafted as the pieces of equipment themselves. This shows how valuable these things were, for the doctor, in order to show how serious and trustworthy he was to the patient.
The pieces of jewellery made are both the box and the jewellery. The mechanisms of the necklace is packed inside itself. The material of he boxes are mostly taken from the trees; bark, seeds, shots, lava, surrounding the house and in this way connects to the history of the hospital.
