Intro
I don’t want to simply create pieces of jewellery. I want to discover something about the Universe, or about myself through each piece I create. Something meaningful and tangible.
 
Ezra Satok-Wolman, Board of Directors of the Society of North American.

Ezra Satok-Wolman will present a lecture on his studio practice and the common thread that connects the projects he has worked on over the last decade. From theorizing about the shape of the Universe in The Mathematical Fingerprint of God project, to engineering a system of body adornment for the future in Jewellery for Astronauts and Space Travellers. His work is an exploration of the geometry of the Universe itself and the relationship between nature and Mathematics. Conceptually, the artist takes a philosophical approach to the jewellery he creates, rather than creating pieces that are narrative or illustrative, and describes making jewellery as an exercise of discovery as much as it is one of creation. Drawing from historical references that range from Pythagoras to Antoni Gaudi to Buckminster Fuller, the artist will discuss the major influences in his work and the importance of research and experimentation in his process.


The lecture will focus on the Triple Parade theme Past and Present.

When: 18th October at 20:10 h.
Where: Dark Room, College of Design and Innovation, TONGJI University Shanghai.
Mediator: Prof. SUN Jie (D&I. Tongji University Shanghai, National Distinguished Expert).
