Intro
Segni sul volto (Signs over the face), a seminar/workshop conceived by Carla Riccoboni in collaboration with Le Arti Orafe, will open with a series of lectures transmitted on an online platform, conducted by professionals from various fields of expertise, focusing on the theme of the project or on the relationship between sign and identity, analysed from a variety of perspectives.
Prof. Chiara Scarpitti will give a lecture focused on the future scenarios of contemporary jewellery linked to new technologies. The contribution will revolve around the key words: “contemporary jewellery”, “new technologies”, “production processes”, “future scenarios”.
From a neo-humanist perspective, the Lecture analyses the future scenarios of contemporary jewellery, re-appropriating the concepts of technology and material, as tools for project reflection. The hybridisation of techno-digital and humanistic-artistic approaches gives rise to new relationships between the jewel and the observer. These interactions converge towards a jewel designed not only for tangible but also intellectual consumption, expanding its meanings to a broader spectrum of themes, such as environmental sustainability, material-technological innovation, and the political and social issues affecting contemporary life. From digital to post-digital, the future scenarios of contemporary jewellery are oriented towards a renewed relationship between human being, nature, and technology.
/ Prof. Chiara Scarpitti
