Intro
Con-tacto is a project that started in March 2020, just when the quarantine started in México, at this point we had already seen images and read about it in the news of what was happening around the world. But it wasn't until then that it hit us. The word con-tacto has different meanings in Spanish, "contacto" translate as contact, which has to do with the condition of physical touch, and "con tacto" means "with care" so in this sense we decide to explore this double meaning through pieces of jewelry that could be made of recycled materials due to the lockdown and that could give meaning to this word.

. Statement: As human beings, we’re naturally social creatures. We cannot avoid it as our instincts oblige us to find our role in society. In the best-case scenario, we create strong bonds with skin to skin contact. Piel con Piel represents, through magnets, this inevitable force that moves us throughout our lives, where we are part of a chain, seeking physical contact; symbolized with a silicone layer. These pieces allow users to choose how to arrange all separate pieces of it, playing with the different shapes, placement, and power of attraction, according to what they’re looking for at the moment..

Nora Carolina Ruíz. Necklace: Museo, 2020. Discarded mobile phones, packaging material, rubber, plastic fastener.. 7 x 7 x 1.8 cm. Photo by: Eduardo Alonso. From series: Artificios. Statement: Experiencing isolation gives us nostalgia and a quest to interact with the world. The artifacts of virtual interaction open infinite possibilities for contact when physical interaction is impossible. The virtual world is the receiver and transmitter of the collective heartbeat. In Artificios I used material remainings of the objects that connect us in the virtual world. Fragments of the bridge between two worlds, the virtual and the material, a simulation with-touch..

Sofía Arreguín Poucel. Brooch: Nesting 1, 2020. Silver electroformed branch, wood, cotton thread.. 2.5 x 18.5 x 0.6 cm. Photo by: Sofía Arreguín Poucel. From series: Nesting. Statement: Like a little bird choosing the best branches to build its nest where it takes care of its younglings, we have been preparing our home for it to be our space of peace, relaxation, a place to be safe with our family in these times of crisis. These brooches pay tribute to what we have lived during quarantine and the changes we have made to our homes to make them more suitable for quarantine. Technology has played an important part in this transformation since the only contact we have with our friends, family, and the outside world is our phones, our computers, and our TVs. That's why the main material in this piece is metal (copper and silver). I added the cotton cord contrary to the cold metal, referencing the comfort we seek in our homes.. Sofía Arreguín Poucel

Alejandra Piña Amunategui. Object: Elbow, 2020. Oaxaca clay.. 5 x 5 x 5 cm. Photo by: Alejandra Piña Amunategui. From series: Awkward Contact. Statement: This piece refers to physical contact in these times. We have stopped intertwining to only touch parts of our body with the least possible contact. As if we had amputated limbs, bones touch with our joints, knees, fists, or elbows. It is as if we repel each other, giving us the most impersonal feeling.. Alejandra Piña Amunategui
