Magneto Series: 1-175 For 2010 Rings, I explored relationships between impermanence & attraction. Using rare earth magnets & steel dust, these rings are always a little off kilter, unwieldy & have a life of their own. Aware of their environment, they shift their own states & shift the states of other objects (credit cards & iPods take note!).
