SWAP is a collaboration with myself and Kasia Wozniak where I have made a necklace and Kasia has made a photograph.

The necklace is a hollow gold curb chain. The process requires me to draw silver into gold tube before the chain is constructed. After construction I file each link to expose the silver inside. My self and Kasia then dipped the chain into nitric acid. The acid dissolves the silver leaving the hollow gold chain and silver nitrate crystals which are then used by Kasia in a wet plate collodion photograph of the same chain.
