At this collaborative jewellery project, traditional goldsmithing techniques are fused with modern technologies that are available to the studio jeweller. The designers will explore the notion of ‘collect/collecting/collective’, investigating why we can’t resist grouping and collecting certain objects. The outcome will be installed in an exhibition where you will be encouraged to offer other objects in exchange for the artworks on display. ‘Old’ systems of trade (such as the barter system) will be explored with the aid of ‘new’ technology such as an online store.

EXHIBITORS: Catherine Buman, Cesar Cueva, Cesar A. Cueva, Cinnamon Lee, Tommy Milanovic, Rita Rogers, Katrina Stamatopoulos and Damian White
