Intro
The exhibition "Done" displays the graduation work of this year’s bachelor and master students in Applied Art and Design at University of Applied Science Düsseldorf. 10 graduates showed their autonomous ideas and visions on jewellery, objects and product design.

Artist list

Anna-Maria Heuer, Alessa Joosten, Xiaoqing Long, Anja Metzger, Sarah Regensburger, Angela Rippel, Esther Sprenger, Yingting Wang, Anna-Lina Werner, Xiaowei Wie
Driven to explore, discover, question and shape the 10 graduates developed well-reflected and significant new products. Wide research and interpretation of traditional jewellery forms, new innovative technologies or contexts between jewellery, fashion and art is the base of their individual design process.

This year’s final graduation show was a program of diverse readings for an interested audience added. Next to various designers and alumni who already work in the field, a few selected students were able to demonstrate and explain their projects in detail.

Annika Kunst and Tim Schmeer, students of the Communication Design Department of our faculty develop the general corporate design for this year’s graduation show.
DONE the special announcement for the Applied Art and Design Department was designed by Stephanie Butzen. The successful cooperation between the Applied Art and Design and the Communication Design Department complete the individual graduation projects and is paradigmatic for studying at the Peter Behrens School of Arts of the University of Applied Science Düsseldorf.

The Department displayed the works of students for the last time under the title of Applied Art and Design. From September 2019, we rename the Department and will in future operate under the new title New Craft Object Design.

. Transitions - conception, design and  realisation of wearable objects 
. The topic of my final M.A. project is transitions. I was working on overlappings and differentiation of jewellery, fashion and art. I‘m interested in this subject because both jewellery and fashion are related to the body and are mainly worn in combination. Nevertheless, I always felt a border between both fields. That was arousing my interest to follow up with the idea of creating wearable objects at the transition to fashion and accessories. In the early stage of development, I was working with coincidental discoveries. But also simple joining techniques, as well as the visual language of the material and it‘s tactile and hearing-related sensuality, are playing a huge role in my concept. It was important to me to create autonomous jewellery objects that aren‘t situated hierarchically below fashion. Due to that the pieces are neither attached to the clothing nor integrated into the garments. During the development process, I was dealing with characteristics and typical production methods of jewellery and fashion and transferred techniques of clothing production into jewellery. Moreover, I was questioning the common position of jewellery on the body. My transitional objects are playing with the means of dissolving the function of an object and shifting the context. They are difficult to classify at first glance especially while they are not worn on the body. Thereby I‘d like the beholder to challenge and expand his perspective. While working on crossovers I‘d like to questioning the boundaries of the disciplines.. Alessa Joosten

.  My artwork demonstrates a confrontation with the world of material matters. Prior to my research, I assumed that the purely physical characteristics and functions of objects were more deeply bound to non-material attributes and symbolic energies. The alienation of the familiar connectivity (or context), of the function or form, generates paradoxes which are intended to stimulate the carrier for reflection.
. The explorative handling of the technology of welding activates in my workflow a new ornamental function. Combining the ornament and the function, all pieces of jewellery are characterized by some kind of fusion.. Esther Heite

From series: Archetype

It‘s not just scientists and sociologists who have recognized it, also jewellery designer Sarah Regensburger is dealing intensively with the topic: How does the digital age, in which social media significantly influences everyday life, change the language through computer-mediated communication? A flood of colourful emojis questions the rule of letters and reveals a tendency to redevelop a language based on pictorial signs. What meaning do we attribute to the individual letters of the alphabet? Can we look at them detached from predestined archetypes and experiences? When does a letter become an abstract sign, a form or even an object? Searching for an answer, the observer‘s view and the role of one‘s own body plays an important role in the jewellery pieces. Through the different treatment of materiality and abstraction of existing characters, a process of different ways of looking at original structures should be initiated.
