Intro
Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts presents a course directed by Lucy Sarneel for their 2014 summer courses. This course emphasises the specific role that jewellery plays in our mass-oriented, efficient, high-tech world, and the individual value it represents to us. It aims to reveal and encourage each student’s visual language, as well as their drive and expressiveness in the field of jewellery.
This course emphasises the specific role that jewellery plays in our mass-oriented, efficient, high-tech world, and the individual value it represents to us. Attention will be paid to each student’s personal perception of jewellery, but also to the diversity in the history and tradition of jewellery.
With personal guidance, students will develop “their own cosmos” through research, sketching and writing, in order to inspire and encourage their individual working process. The course is a playground for discovering new ways of applying techniques and material according to the student’s individual imagination, rather than a course about particular jewellery techniques.
A series of conceptual and practical exercises will lead the participants towards a personal working process. Making, reflecting and communicating are keywords in the working method. It encourages thinking in possibilities, rather than in solutions, resulting in a challenging and open approach to jewellery.
Jewellery-related discussions and guest lectures are initiated to increase students’ awareness of the meaning of jewellery. In the final week the participants are expected to present their work to the public in an inventive way which involves interaction with the city of Salzburg.
The course aims to reveal and encourage each student’s visual language, as well as their drive and expressiveness in the field of jewellery.
