Intro
The artistic and playful designs of Cunshuo aspire to co-living with the body. They are not an extension of the body, but an external organ in itself. Cunshuo’s creations are not worn on the body, but they merge, as it were, with the body; ‘the jewel lives with you’.

Nominated by Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, Antwerp, Belgium. 

The artistic and playful designs of Cunshuo aspire to co-living with the body. They are not an extension of the body, but an external organ in itself. Cunshuo’s creations are not worn on the body, but they merge, as it were, with the body; ‘the jewel lives with you’. The work is ingenious, in refined and fragile design, inspired by dynamics and movement in nature and consistently translated into technological design. Thorough research preceded this collection. The designs are based on three types of movement: the fluttering of the butterfly, the swimming motion of the jellyfish and the turning of the windmill. Wearability is an important consideration for Cunshuo. The presentation of his work therefore includes film fragments in which the designs live and move along with the rhythm of those wearing them. The subtle togetherness is visually disturbed by the magnified movements; a more subdued image can visualise the message of coexistence more strongly.

Summary of the Master Thesis:
In my concept, jewellery worn on our body is amongst our most intimate possessions. If jewellery can bring different degrees of feedback from our body movement as an extension part of the wearer’s body, then the wearer and jewellery itself will have a harmonious relationship.
With this collection, I want to achieve an interaction between jewellery and the human body by using the principles of kinetic art. On this basis, jewellery can produce certain kinds of physical feedback from our body movements. This feedback responds differently from different degrees of movements of the body (such as walking or running). In the design of structure, I made three different kinds of structures to provide different reactions of jewellery. These are driven by wind when we are moving, or a spring in the structure. Influenced by the up and down movements of our body, jewellery can “breathe” as a part of our body, it has a rhythm dependent on our body.
