These new jewellery series are inspired by the current geological period where humanity transforms the physical, chemical and biological natural landscape and ground irreversibly.
Artist listChiara Scarpitti
Every jewel represents a different digital collage created by the author, through relational research between extinct plants, flowers and endangered landscapes. By the mixing of different techniques – both handcrafted and digital – and materials – each piece offers a different perspective on this natural condition, from an aesthetic and philosophical point of view.
The work comes from research both theoretical than experimental. Every piece is the final result of a complex process of thinking, design and production. The inspiration comes from anthropology, ancient images and poetry. The aim is to reflect, from an anthropological point of view, about the sense of materials, techniques, shapes. I see the jewel in a sort of dialectical relationship with the poetic and visionary dimension of us. The pieces bud from a crossbreeding of materials and techniques, both digital and handcrafted. The same mixing is made between different techniques as haute couture tailoring techniques, digital prints, industrial chemical cut, laser cut, 3D prototyping. The work explores the reactions between the jewellery and the body, people and the space around them. All is finalised to investigate a new kind of jewel as an intersection point between craftsmanship and industry, humanity and technology. The products of this research are devices to reflect for a better future.
