Intro
An exploration of the themes of relocation, transplantation, camouflage, identity and materiality through mixed media jewellery. Geology and geophysics are used as an analogy to illustrate the topical theme of population displacement.
 
At the beginning of June, 2016 eleven jeweller artists and goldsmiths came together, in Edinburgh, from across the UK and Italy. Brought together by The Italian Cultural Institute and Edinburgh College of Art, the project culminated in a week-long workshop as part of a series of geological, open lectures and events coordinated by the Italian Cultural Institute and The Scottish Gemmological Institute. In exploring the themes of relocation, transplantation, camouflage, identity and materiality these eleven makers discovered new means by which to work with alternative and found materials and open a multicultural conversation about pertinent themes today.
