Intro
Sébastien Carré is a jewelry designer based in France. After studying five years at HEAR, the prestigious Art school of Strasbourg in France, he decides to stay there to keep on working on his organic jewelries. Throughout many exhibits he tries to wake up corporeality and the senses of the spectators. 
 

Statement

The making of these pieces of jewelry is inspired by cell mitosis. The modular process used to produce its shape, and the interactivity of materials chosen, bring forth the idea of a living organism. 
The materials I use are picked in order to allow me to work despite the constraints of my disease. (eg: Chrones) Being able to work outside of the studio was definitely the most important part of this process, and textile became one of the most obvious choices of material to use during my creative process.
 
I am using this process to create objects to represent parts of the human body (see the seven meter necklace which represents the digestive tract), sometimes to symbolize the concept of the inflammation), or to even question our relationship with our own body and others'.
 
Even if we can find cathartic meaning in my pieces of jewelry, I consider them more interactive artefacts designed to help you feel your own body and to instigate discussion and thus interpersonal communica
tion.
