 If you can check out how a car works, why not check out whether a piece of jewellery makes you look glamorous, popular, funny, sophisticated, attractive etc?
If the project works, it will open new ways to promote and sell jewellery and everybody in this business can profit from the experiment.
If it does not work, it will still be a charming utopian experiment to be remembered for years.
However, we think in a country like Germany with shared economy/swarming/DIY dominant in the public discourse the idea will work and  will sell.
More details on what exactly is Myths 2016-Test Drive soon. Stay tuned.

« Μyths 2016-Test Drive » have the honor and pleasure to announce its cooperation with PLATFORM Munich.
PLATFORM is a pilot project of the city of Munich, financed by the Department of Labor and Economic Development.
It offers space for cultural production, develops concepts for and with actors of the cultural and creative industries and builds new alliances between culture and business.
« Myths 2016 – Test Drive » is inspired by Share Economy, the discourse on saving energy and resources, as well as the change in consumption patterns in developped countries.

Jill Lenaerts « ARTROPLASTIEK » project :
Jill Lenaerts is inspired by the shapes of prosthetics, and more specifically by those for human joints. The collection ARTHROPLASTY consists of various wooden necklaces where the focus is on functionality, the movement of the parts, the aesthetic aspect and the conversion from prosthetics to hand-turned wooden necklace links. As an interpretation of joints silicone strands are used to hold the wooden parts together, just like tendons and ligaments keep the bones together at a joint.

Juan Harnie ‘Scar(r)ed’project :
In his project ‘Scar(r)ed’, Juan Harnie investigates how medical materials, deformities and scar tissue can be used in jewellery even though many people associate them with negative experiences and fear. As an outcome of this research he created a collection of brooches and necklaces made of latex and a variety of medical materials such as syringes, gauze and stainless steel basins. This unusual choice of materials and the technique of surgical stitching creates very decorative, yet uncanny pieces.

Senna Fransen « Móshì » project

The starting point of Móshì is the overwhelmed feeling I had when looking at the patterns, colours and ornaments from Chinese temple architecture. In this project I investigate how to create jewellery that has the same overwhelming architectural effect on the viewer.
An ornament is a means of beautification of jewellery (which in its own right is also an ornament), but can also be a constructive element in the process of creation. Using four parameters: color, layering, form and technique, I tried to find the conditions necessary to construct the overwhelming effect. These parameters also became the four elements through which my jewellery is constructed.
