Meet Lisa Walker in her workshop: VR in the museum

The New Zealand jeweller Lisa Walker sits in her apron at her workbench. The surface before her is packed with an array of tools: a drill, a glue gun, pliers, paint brushes. The shelves behind her overflow with fossicked, found materials and objects. She reaches for the taxidermied ducklings sourced from an online auction site and explains, “They have an awful history and reason for existing. I’m intrigued by making them into a beautiful, cute, fluffy necklace. So there are two extremes happening and I wanted to test how it would be to throw them together.”
