What is the connection between contemporary jewelry to the notions of war and conflict?
How can contemporary artists and designers inquire about the social and historical context, about peace and dialogue, and how can they claim their active role for a better world?

In a year that marks the commemoration of 100 years since the end of one of the most atrocious events in history - the First World War, all forms of artistic expression seem to come together in a common discourse. Film, theater, literature, painting, sculpture, photography, exert their potential of communicating stories and transmitting emotions from the past. Contemporary jewelry brings its own approach, perhaps more personal and intimate than other visual forms. By the act of creation and wearing, jewelry expresses its value through a permanent dialogue between the artist and the bearer, in which the story changes and evolves permanently.

Camera Lucida project was set out in 2017 as a challenge for artists around the world to work together and use contemporary jewelry as a medium of artistic expression and intersubjective analysis of World War I. Romanian and international artists from over 10 countries (including USA, France, Italy, Spain, Costa Rica, Mexico, Finland and South Korea) responded to the challenge and collaborated in an experimental project in teams of two. The results spoke about trench art, front letters, family memories, and important moments in the collective memory.

How different are we human beings from each other? How many of those concerned about collective traumas will respond to our challenge focusing on revenge, on a righteous justice? The surprise is that healing, normality, beauty, and other ideas of a natural world have been the filters of perception and remembrance of the atrocious events.
