Jina Seo‎  -   Schmuck2017

 While the Wunderkammer, or cabinet of curiosities, emerged in the courts of Europe from the 16th century onward, Korea was witnessing the growing popularity of virtual bookshelves in its royal courts, and later among its bourgeoisie. This genre of Korean painting is called Chaekgado, a sort of painted Wunderkammer showing from various perspectives the books and belongings of a scholar.
Although the traditions of the Wunderkammer vary in form and function between Korea and Europe, they have significant aspects in common. In each culture the cabinet of curiosities is an intimate space filled with people’s desires and longings for a foreign world. Both reflect the yearning for precious things and a curiosity for nature as something exotic.
In allusion to the Korean Chaekgado as well as the European Wunderkammer, Keum Art Projects presents the exhibition ‘The Room of Desires’ at the newly opened raumwerk in Munich-Westend. ‘The Room of Desires’ presents paintings, installations and design objects from Korea side by side with those from Germany, creating a cabinet of wishes, longings and desires. The exhibition features supposedly mundane objects such as candle holders, ceramic vessels and writing utensils, along with playful and contemplative installations by visual artists and designers.
The idea of the cosmos, which the Wunderkammer and Chaekgado attempted to capture through objects and books, is being trivialised by the digital revolution in our current age of the internet. In a world where books are collected by Google and desires are fulfilled on the internet, ‘The Room of Desires’ investigates the predilections and yearnings of our time, and tries to rediscover human desire and longings in objects.

« in the brooches « Memoria Aperta«  ………..  the artist effectively tests the value of the memories that bind everything and everyone. In this collection, ceramic animals, porcelain dolls, sculpted ivory shapes, woods, glass, miniatures of old photos—unearthed, inherited, and collected relics—are mixed in with incredible reproductions in lost wax of shoes, dresses, tiny tools of daily use, mini-bestiary, and gems. Paganin weaves her thick net of information on a sort of genetic algorithm in which everyone can find their reflection. Each brooch, every necklace starts a story. It’s up to us to choose the plots. »  (By Silvia Valenti on  AJF)

Melting Point 2014 VALENCIA (Spain) – 8-11 Mai 2014

Melting Point Valencia 2014

The Jewellery Department of the School of Art and Design College of Valencia (EASD) will organise the second edition of the so-called “Melting Point Valencia. Joieria Contemporània 2014” next May. In 2012 we celebrated, due to the first Melting Point, the tenth anniversary of the implementation of the Jewellery Department and jewellery studies in our centre. The experience was fruitful in terms of the participation of institutions and jewellers, the quality of the papers presented and the exchange of experiences and contacts made during those days. Thus, we really want to take advantage of the opportunity to repeat this experience.
The aim of this meeting is still the same than before: “…for one week the EASD Valencia and the whole city become the meeting point for artists, designers, experts, collectors, scholars and broad audiences interested in jewellery in southern Europe”. However, we would like to include a further ambitious goal: that is, to consolidate and strengthen our position in the national and international scene as a cultural, artistic, academic and professional reference for Spanish contemporary jewellery. We do not claim to be a trade fair, it is not our task. Hence, our goal is to spread the work of our students and the current projection of jewellery regarding language, profession, function or symbolism.
Melting Point 2014
For this 2014 edition we have the honour to offer a wide diversity of exhibitions, conferences and other activities by highly reputed institutions such as the National Museum of Ceramics and Sumptuary Arts González Martí, or the Octubre Centre for Contemporary Culture.
We want to highlight the participation of Peter Bauhuis, Ursula Guttmann, Gisbert and Rose Stach. (Germany), Museum of Turnov (Czech Republic), Villa de Bondt Gallery (Belgium), Natalia Saldías (Chile), Alchimia School (Italy), Maden Studio (Turkey), University of Lincoln (United Kingdom), La Basilica Gallery (Barcelona), Taller Perill (Barcelona) or EAD Tarragona, among others.
Melting Point 2014
We also want to emphasise the relevance that this ancient discipline stands beyond our borders nowadays, on the artistic, educational and professional levels. Concerning this, we would like to ask the appropriate educational authorities for the deserved transition of the jewellery studies to a Degree level, following the same direction that other countries around our cultural and economic environment took years ago. This way, our professionals will no longer be in an inferior position when compared to the students of other European Union countries. In addition, as this demand is feasible due to the fact that human resources and programs already exist, we just need a political action.
Finally, we would like to invite you to visit Melting Point València. Joieria Contemporània 2014, in order to meet us, to learn from all the projects you can find here during these days, and to enjoy the jewellery as well as Valencia city. This is an experience we want to share with you.

DECOUVERTE : Daniela CARDILLO ….. « so exquisite… »

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,Daniela CARDILLO (IRL),Irlande (IRL),organics,SHOP — bijoucontemporain @ 18:37

« ….this is beautiful stuff. It’s shockingly well crafted ….. Secondly, there’s the concept : this is jewellery formed out of electroformed components of dead animals. Skulls, bones, claws – who’d have thought this stuff could be so exquisite? » Says Ails McGee of Daniela Cardillo (store.accordingtomcgee)

 Daniela Cardillo has been shortlisted for this year’s European Prize for Applied Arts – Young Talent, and her work will go on display from 14 July to 9 September in Belgium. She will find out next week if she has won an award.
« Speaking to, Daniella explained that her work isn’t about shock value; instead, it is about creating something beautiful.
“It’s great – I’ve been really busy lately,” said Cardillo of her nomination. She has recently returned from London, where she met with retailers to discuss the possibility of selling her work in stores.
Since graduating last year, she has met with an enterprise board and taken a ‘start your own business’ course, while working on getting funding together to set up her own studio.
She hopes to have her online store up and running next week and is working on creating pieces that are less labour-intensive and more affordable than her previous work. » (

« I am concerned with finding beauty in and making use of death and discard.I’m intrigued by the components that make up a creature. When an animal dies, these parts loose their sense of function, and can then be studied and appreciated for their true aesthetics.
Taxidermy, hunting trophies and the concept of the animal as a status and power symbol, is also at the root of my work. If bones, skulls, claws, and hair are considered memento-mori, the pieces are not a simple reminder of death, but an alteration of it, vitalizing past life fragments.
Each piece is individually hand crafted, using traditional Victorian hair weaving techniques. The bones are electroformed and then goldplated, encasing individual relics of past lives. » Daniela Cardillo (National College of Art and Design Craft Design (Ceramics, Glass & Metals) BDes (artsthread)

VALENCIA … MELTING POINT – SCHMUCK 2012 in Valencia (Spain) but not only… – 4 avril-7 mai 2012

Classé dans : Anne WIEDAU (DE),Espagne (ES),Exposition/Exhibition,SCHMUCK / MJW (DE) — bijoucontemporain @ 22:23

VALENCIA … melting point 2012

In May, Schmuck 2012 in Valencia (Spain) … but not only ….


This academic year 2011-2012, the Escola d’Art i Superior de Disseny de València is celebrating the first ten years of the creation of the Department of Jewellery, independent of tha fact that the study of this discipline with its various subjects and workshops has existed for a much longer time. To mark this anniversary we have organised an ambitious programme of activities, exhibitions and talks on contemporary jewellery giving it the name MELTING POINT 2012. Joieria Contemporània València. For one week the EASD de València and indeed the whole city will be the focal point in the south of Europe for artists, designers, specialists, collectors, academics, and the general public with an interest in the field.
We are extremely grateful to all those persons and institutions wich have believed in this project and have chosen to collaborate with us. It is as well a project closely related to an event, Schmuck 2012, wich can well be called a dream made reality. Schmuck is visiting Spain for the very first time and we have succeeded in making Valencia the city wich will receive what is without a doubt the most prestigious exhibition of contemporary jewellery in Europe, wich can be viewed for two months in the MuVIM.
We believe that this discipline, as yet underestimated and with so much yet to be done in terms of development and consolidation in Spain, will benefit hugely gaining a more fully deserved recognition of the possibilities which jewellery offers as a language of the plastic arts, as well as in the area of study plans.
This celebration is clearly not without its revindication. We are asking that the different educational bodies raise the level of the study of jewellery to a parallel level as that enjoyed in other countries of a similar cultural and economic background as ours. Only thus will our professionals not need to accept inferior conditions within the European market and will we be able to erradicate the evident comparative slur. We have the human resources as well as the programmes. Now we only need the conviction and the political will. We wish to extend this revindication to the other artistic departments of Photography, Applied Arts, and Audiovisual Media. It is incomprehensible that in 2012 these fields still have not received this level of study and preparation.
For all these reasons we wish to invite you to come and acquaint yourselves with the work of so many international jewellers of both sexes who will be meeting in vlc over these days; to discover the techniques and the expressive potential of contemporary jewellery; in short, to enjoy its multiple languages. And above all, we wish to share the experience with you.

EXPO ‘Un peu de terre sur la peau’ – Musée des Arts Deco, Paris (FR) – 15 Mars-19 Aout 2012

Un peu de terre sur la peau

Poursuivant une programmation prospective dans le domaine de la céramique contemporaine, après « Petits bouleversements au centre de la Table » en 2008 et « Circuit Céramique » en 2010, les Arts Décoratifs, en partenariat avec la Fondation d’entreprise Bernardaud, ont souhaité s’intéresser à l’utilisation que font certains artistes bijoutiers du matériau céramique. L’exposition « Un peu de terre sur la peau » a été conçue à partir d’œuvres très récentes, qui interrogent les codes ancestraux du bijou pour les projeter dans des perspectives nouvelles. Les 18 jeunes créateurs sélectionnés font souffler un vent de transgression sur ce domaine encore très attaché aux traditions. D’origine française, suisse, allemande, finlandaise, hollandaise, suédoise ou taiwanaise, ils proposent en 140 pièces marquantes leur vision iconoclaste du corps et de la parure.

EXPO 'Un peu de terre sur la peau' - Musée des Arts Deco, Paris (FR) - 15 Mars-19 Aout 2012 dans Andi GUT (CH) fa33b4aaeed4e6f7244c355ee9ec0a6c

Unlike traditional jewellery, the traditional craft of the goldsmith, since the 1970s contemporary jewellery has become a field of experimentation at the frontiers of art, design and the artistic crafts. In this exhibition, eighteen French, Swiss, German, Finnish, Swedish and Taiwanese, artists are proposing a new and personal vision in their work. Although some pieces were conceived in reference to the history of jewellery, they can be made with the most diverse materials, using every possible assemblage process, in function of the techniques, symbols and the culture during a given period. This exhibition, conceived by the Fondation Bernardaud, is being shown in the museum’s Contemporary Space.
The exhibition is curated by Monika Brugger.

A la différence du bijou classique – conçu comme un art appliqué, selon des techniques d’orfèvre et avec des matériaux généralement précieux – un « nouveau bijou » a émergé depuis les années 1970, caractérisé par son hybridité et conçu comme un lieu d’expérimentation, installé aux frontières de l’art et du design. Ce ne sont plus seulement les questions liées au coût des matériaux et au statut social qui sont posées par ces nouveaux artistes bijoutiers, mais plutôt le positionnement culturel du bijou en tant qu’oeuvre d’art, en relation au corps. Le bijou est redéfini par eux comme une pratique pleinement intégrée aux arts plastiques.
Depuis toujours, le bijou a joué un rôle d’indicateur social, traduisant une appartenance à un groupe et intégrant l’homme dans la société, mais pouvant marquer également une volonté de différenciation, de contestation de l’ordre établi. Parure intime donc « singulière », le bijou parle de notre corps, des liens qu’il tisse avec autrui et avec l’environnement. Les bijoux n’ont pas toujours été fabriqués en or, en argent ou en pierres précieuses. Ils peuvent également être conçus avec des matériaux les plus divers et grâce à tous les assemblages possibles, en fonction des techniques, des symboles et de la culture en vigueur à une époque donnée. Depuis la réalisation de bagues sigillaires en faïence dans l’Égypte ancienne, ou d’ersatz en terre cuite dorée imitant l’or dans la Grèce et la Rome antique, la céramique a été abandonnée et oubliée pendant des siècles dans le domaine du bijou. C’est en 1773, en Angleterre, que son emploi resurgit lorsque Joshiah Wedgwood inventa une pâte de grès fin constituée de différentes strates colorées qui imitait parfaitement le jaspe, pour des bijoux aux motifs néoclassiques ou des sujets romantiques en camées. Dans l’époque contemporaine, c’est au créateur hollandais Peter Hoogeboom que l’on doit d’avoir réconcilié de la façon la plus novatrice le grès ou la porcelaine avec le bijou, à partir de 1994. A cette réapparition remarquée, fait suite l’excellente initiative de l’European Keramiek Work Centre (EKWC), situé à ‘s-Hertogenbosch aux Pays-Bas, qui a proposé à de nombreux orfèvres contemporains des résidences de trois mois, leur permettant de travailler toutes les possibilités de mise en forme de la céramique dans le domaine du bijou.
Parmi les différents matériaux céramiques disponibles, c’est la porcelaine qui a le plus souvent aujourd’hui la faveur des artistes du bijou. Qu’elle soit utilisée par modelage ou moulage, seule ou en association avec le métal, le bois ou la pierre, la porcelaine peut changer d’apparence, de couleur et de surface. Lisse et pure, à la fois fragile et de grande résistance, elle épouse toutes les formes recherchées à condition d’en maîtriser les techniques et les contraintes, particulièrement celle liée à sa forte rétraction lors de la cuisson. Encore largement liée dans notre imaginaire aux arts de la table ou à la froideur technologique du matériel scientifique, la porcelaine peut aussi devenir un objet de désir, un déclencheur de sensations visuelles et physiques, lorsqu’elle est transformée en bijoux, en s’adaptant parfaitement aux exigences conceptuelles et poétiques des créateurs d’aujourd’hui. La preuve en est faite avec un peu de terre sur la peau…
Le projet Un peu de terre sur la peau… a été initié par la Fondation d’entreprise Bernardaud : l’exposition a été présentée à Limoges du 16 juin au 16 octobre 2010, puis a voyagé au Museum of Arts and Design à New York (USA), du 15 mars au 4 septembre 2011) et au New Taipei City Yingge Ceramics Museum à Taipei (Taïwan), du 30 décembre 2011 au 5 février 2012.

EXPO ‘Making Treasure’ – Birmingham City University, Birmingham (UK) – 13-22 Sept 2010

« Making Treasure  »

REALLY, REALLY  …. TREASURES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!  :-)

« Fantastical edible creations, modern re-interpretations of historical decorative arts, rubber glove garments and wearable drawings, a selection of what will be showcased at Making Treasure, the MA Jewellery, Silversmithing and Related Products graduate exhibition opening on September 13th.
The exhibition is the culmination of the intensive one-year long course taught at the renowned School of Jewellery, Birmingham City University.
The international group of makers join together to present new and original work that pushes conventional boundaries that co-exist within sculpture, fashion and fine art. The work exhibited challenges preconceived ideas of what jewellery and objects can be in form, material, function and scale whilst displaying individual aesthetics, design methodologies and artistic points.  »

« Not only is perception of ourselves, of others and the world around us, a source of inspiration, it also invites us into an active and dynamic engagement, which is deeply related to the things we make. Considerations of sculptural form, composition, material, function and aesthetics are enhanced by contemplations of meaning, emotional investments and intellectual content.
The creative work of the makers in this exhibition address aspects of the most vital issues in contemporary applied arts; in their questioning of established ideas of what constitutes adornment, how decoration should be defined and executed, these works engage the eye and the mind simultaneously. They appeal to the intellect, whilst eliciting an instantaneous sensual reaction of pleasure, a desire to touch, hold, use and wear.
MA Jewellery, Silversmithing & Related Products is the overall title of the course. This is however a very limited and traditional description when one considers the wide variety of products that are within the province of the designer who has knowledge and expertise in the area of personal ornaments, body signification and decorative metal objects. The variety of materials, manufacturing techniques and processes available to an artist or designer in this field is far larger and of much greater potential than is indicated by the term ‘jewellery and silversmithing’ and has some affinities with industrial design, fashion design, fine art and sculpture and is often informed by intellectual engagements like general philosophy, conceptualisation or critical theory.
Our course philosophy addresses the existing and potential relationships within this sector, and educates its students to recognize, identify, understand and operate within this diversity. The philosophy of the course is embodied within a structured project programme that requires students to address vocational and academic research in design by applying their developing abilities and interests to a wide range of issues. Design experiences include ideas generation focused through strategies for concept development, the analysis of design problems and reflection on the relationships between personal objectives, cultural values, market identities, prototyping techniques and new technologies, thus enhancing knowledge and understanding, as well as facilitating the formation of professional studio methodologies. «   (Professor Jivan Astfalck, PhD )


Farrah Al-Dujaili
My design methodology revolves around the act of drawing
as an intuitive and subconscious process; geometric and organic components ‘grow’ alongside each other to create visual contrasts. Through a palette of feminine and masculine symbols, heavily detailed flowers and geometric shapes and crosshatched lines hybrid forms are created; not overtly floral, but organic and playful.
My making is immersed in metalwork because of the material’s ability to be visually delicate but physically strong. Fragments are created and later constructed to create the idiosyncratic detailing that appears in my drawings. I work within an intuitive mix of drawing and making that crosses over and intertwines.
I apply drawing materials of pencil, crayons and watercolours to a surface of enamel paint. This gives an interesting material link to my design methodology, enforcing the dialogue between drawing and making.

Hsiang-Lin Lu
Rice is cheap, small, but vital
. I like the taste of rice, and the form of rice. I enjoy playing with the rice grains and placing them into different shapes. They are like bricks creating lush texture and speckled pattern.
In contrast, lace, delicate embroideries, and ribbons present the opulence and craftsmanship of aristocratic fashion. For some people, food is the only object they desire, unlike the ladies of the court who are chasing adorned shoes and beautiful garment or jewellery, the vast number of people need bread and water.
Rice is the food that most of the people in my country rely on. It is the symbol of living, a symbol that is cheap but essential, which is like potato or corn to others. The definition of ‘ordinary’ and ‘luxury’ at different levels of social status is contradictory and interesting. I use this ‘ordinary’ material to describe opulence, and also explore the meaning of value and preciousness in different contexts. The richness and tactile abundance in the texture of rice delivers a deluxe beauty in place of the lace and jewels. I use this cheap material to produce enchanting and original works.

Hsiang-Lin Lu- I’ve been doing my final project of MA degree recently. I try to use rice and other combinations to explore the potential of this material. Here is one of them


Laura Brannon
I create Jewellery that is grotesque yet intriguing by using rubber, plastics and found objects. Symbols from our collective subconscious, weird imagery of clowns, costumes, monsters and madness have fuelled this idiosyncratic collection.
The objects show elements of play amongst those of fear- this ambiguity can give the viewer an uncomfortable feeling as it requires to engage with two contradictory ideas at the same time. This I find fascinating!
My making process is spontaneous but controlled. I use a wide range of materials including rubber, plastics, foam and found objects. These contrasting textures and clashing colours are amalgamated, allowing the pieces to develop sculpturally. The use of ready-mades gives structure to the work and increases uncanny feelings. We know these ready-mades but when they are positioned within this madness, they offer new perspectives- we have to take a second look.

Paper has, without doubt, many varied uses. However, multiple layered paper interests me with its subtle movement and tactile qualities. I aim to recreate the link between the material and its original source in the natural environment. Pure and organic elements reveal a delicate and subtle visual language. The pieces function both as wearable pieces of body adornment and as sculptural objects off the body. The soft and subdued tones of colour that I choose give a quiet, calm and contemplative quality to the pieces.
Time is an essential element through the making progress; time, nature and I form my works, meticulous working processes enable me to develop a range of elements, which create the compositions.

Miriam Rowe
I am interested in the dialogue created when recognisable forms from the history of European fashion and the decorative arts are combined, changed, and reinterpreted in a modern material.
For this project I chose to focus on material research and development, exploring plaster as a primary material in jewellery. Plaster has long been used in architectural decoration, but the plaster I use has been chemically changed with modern products to create an altered material that is waterproof and suited for use in jewellery production. I explored surface enhancement and advanced construction techniques to further develop the jewellery. I developed my construction methods based on historical plasterwork, adapting these techniques to fit my personal design agenda.
The images and forms I use come directly from my photos and drawings, based on objects seen on my visits to museums and stately homes. My interest in the forms, patterns, and images from the rich history of European design inspires this collection of contemporary jewellery.

Natalie Smith
My work explores the ideas of growth, transformation and disintegration. I find inspiration in surrealist science fiction, which is rich in atmosphere and imagery. Many of the books describe apocalyptic landscapes and alternate worlds that are on the brink of geographical catastrophes. In these dramatic dreamscapes there are no utopias, emphasis is placed on mental explorations and evocative journeys of the isolated humans.
I create my pieces by combining permanent and temporary materials such as textiles and sugar. I like the pieces to have a constantly changing structure and once completed, begin their transient lives. Depending on how they are cared for they may dissolve in humid conditions, change colour or melt like an ice-lolly on a hot day revealing the materials underneath. The evolution of the work is something that interests me greatly. I do not attempt to try and control what happens to the pieces after they are finished. I like an element of surprise.

Ningrui Zhou
The theme behind my work is to create a “city in the sky”. My inspiration initially came from a plastic bag flying in the air which I saw when I looked up into the sky .This evoked a good feeling and I began to consider the concept and question of flying; why should jewellery not fly? My work evolved from this to become sculptural objects. I create objects from bamboo and Chinese rice paper, exploring form, shape and structure. The visual use of lines in the pieces, in the installation and images of my work build together an alternative city skyline. I hope people can find a feeling of freedom and escapism in my work. I express this idea by taking photographic views of the city and making short films to tell stories about my flying pieces.

My work derives from an exploration of the relationship between form and function. I look to create functional objects for the home which challenge and excite the user with designs which are serious yet play on their relationships. I have explored possibilities in form to create objects which invite interaction and arouse interest beyond mere function. Through these ideas I have created families of objects which communicate with one another and belong.
I look for relationships between materials, processes, colours and finishes, in different mediums including ceramics, metal and wood. I have used industrial processes to create some of the objects, whilst others have been developed using paper and card. When people interact with my work I want them to smile, to have fun with the objects, bringing joy to the relationship between object and user.

“Line is a basic element that exists in nature as a structural feature such as branches of a tree, or as surface design, such as striping on a tiger or a seashell. It can also exist by implication, as the edge of forms or its silhouette”. (Joseph A. Gatto 1987)I am interested in linear form and structure; the way in which a simple component can be combined and connected to create complex patterns and forms. All of my pieces are created from only one element “line”. I use a combination of curved lines to create my own three-dimensional forms with my textured wire technique. I use my traditional fine jewellery skills to make sculptural and wearable jewellery by using precious metals with simple colour range to show the purity of the line and the structure. I aim to make each piece appear beautiful from all angles.

My work explores exagerated form and flexible wearability. I am interested in the idea that clothes are usually dominant and jewellery secondary, worn as an accessory to add decoration. My enquiry reverses this concept. To show this emphasis I create large scale jewellery that attracts people’s attention and functions like an item of clothing.
I choose rubber gloves as my material, aiming to transform a mundane everyday item into beautiful and original objects. I explore special dyeing techniques on the rubber gloves. I aim to create a unique aesthetic combination of sculptural construction, dramatic colour and texture. I see my work as visually interesting pieces for every-day wearing.

My jewellery investigates notions of mourning and memorial jewellery, souvenirs that remember a loved one and which are a reminder to the living of the inevitability of death. I work predominately in plaster, which communicates a feeling of fragility related to our weak and transitory life.
Life is precious! I chose to work with tones of black, white and gray. These three tones are the background in my work and are combined with the highlights of copper and gold to form a contrast between preciousness and emptiness. I created images on plaster with symbols of death once used in Victorian mourning jewellery such as skulls, skeletons, and human hair, Memento Mori that are a warning against vanity.

Yi Lei Li
My inspiration comes from nature; the linear structure of plants is fascinating to me. I refine these natural shapes from my photographs of plants by overlaying line drawings. By using metal wire and crochet techniques I transfer graphic shapes into interesting and original three-dimensional structures to make wearable pieces of jewellery.
My collection is like a ‘garden’, every piece is unique with different colour, structure and other contrasts. They express feelings in the same way like in a real garden, where each kind of flower has its own beauty and character though they are different, they can enrich each other and be in harmony. In the process of exploring the linear structures and the balance between each piece and the whole group, I am trying to express the beauty I have found in nature.

Yu-Ching Huang
My designs mirror myself and how I have been shaped by the people I have met.
I am looking for an answer to what might be a gentle and considerate.
Could silence be heard, even without talking?
Could virtue be seen, even without showing?
Could people not hurt each other, even though we all flawed?
Sometimes flowers and plants give me part of reply in the symbiotic relationships they have with other plants and organisms. Plants always have their individual characteristics but don’t interfere with each other. Maybe this is the reason I am fascinated by them.
I chose to use zips in my work to show the connections between people, events, things or places. People all want to connect and have graceful relationships like flowers in a garden. dans Farrah AL-DUJAILI (UK)

My work combines popular fashion elements and bold colour which relate to Pop Art. I organise these elements as collage and stylised images of fashion and beauty. I create my own images from these fashion elements using computer software. The colour range within the images helps me to bring my work together as a collection.
Together with the illustrations and bold colours, I have also designed electronic circuits to extend my jewellery into the realms of light and sound. Adding the electronics makes my work more playful and gives an added function which encourages interaction. My illustrations can be illuminated by the light when worn in a dark place. I have also added sound sensors to my work, so that my work can be changed by the volume of the speed of speech and music.

Yu- Ping Lin
My work is process-based and structurally complex. I am never without a sketchbook where my ideas evolve so I am constantly drawing with brush strokes. The inks sometimes bleed into the Chinese rice paper and at other times they develop into more in-depth ideas and detailed images.
I did not set out to be a fashion designer or to create artwork relating to environmental issues but as my portfolio developed and I became interested in both style and ecology. My work tends to focus on inspiration from nature, the notion of folding and pleating, architectural structures, interaction with people and seduction of pattern and colour; the original pleasure captured by the structure of organisms and forms inherent in nature.

subject of the competition :  “Interplay of Volume and Space”
Your main task is to follow the games of volume with ambient space. Dialogue with space emerges at any disconnected form decision. Often contemporary works of art represent three-dimensional structures filled with air. You can get inspired in your constructions with nature, architecture, fashion… You can use combinations of various materials such as metal, plastics, fabric, cardboard, etc., creating your own fantasy spaces, playing over there with ideas, volumes and materials.
