Limited edition resin bangles made from 16mm film strips
Edition of 21
Part of 2014 Artists in Action! series during I think it’s in my head.
For her AiA! multiple, Dinorah de Jesús Rodriguez created 21 cast resin bangles, each with a unique strip of 16mm film from her creative practice. Bracelets are available in varying diameter and thickness.
I created a mini film festival you can wear on your wrist! Each bangle encases one original hand-crafted film strip that, when spun on the wrist, displays a short movie.
