2-month seminar with Angelica Komis
April, 3 – June, 5 2015
Duration: 36 hours
In this seminar, we will study the human body while performing various activities or sports. We will gather photos or reproduce images (videos) in order to analyze the movements and the physics that the human body brings together in order to perform these activities. The collection of movements in combination with notions of physics, like impetus, resistance, equilibrium, torque etc, will lead us to the creation of a piece of jewelry focusing on the theme of movement. As we will make rotating, removable or screw parts, the technique of non-soldered elements and the study/composition of photo or video will constitute the real challenges of this project. Our goal is to highlight the harmony of bodily movements through the making of jewelry meant for the body. In a way, we are called to fit a moving piece of creation-jewelry on our body or on the body of an athlete-dancer we admire. On every stage of the seminar (study, design, execution), a short presentation of the work of every participant will take place in order to exchange ideas and discuss the different techniques that might be coming up.
