Artist statement "Because of my infautation with technology and electronic products, my communication with people in the real world and with nature has suffered. So I decided to recycle the electronic waste and peach pits around me to create a group of jewellery which express how my life connects with contemporary electronics. I have called my works The Contemporary Seeds." - Yang Zhang
