Alice's Door Necklace


Exploring Wonderland

From reading Alice in Wonderland and being reminded of its surreal and obscure world, I decided to focus my inspiration on the hall of locked doors which Alice first discovers at the bottom of the rabbit hole.  Eventually she finds a tiny door that’s impossible for her to fit through and a tiny golden key.

The simple rectangular shapes layered hap hazard together represents the chaos and frustration of the many locked doors. Using hinges holds the links in place and creates a similar movement to doors. Finally the tiny door can be opened to reveal a mirror showing your reflection. Peering through the door, you can’t actually see all of your face, only the eye. With the book playing with scale and the changes in size, it’s almost mimicking the feeling of being too big to see.
