the relation of jewellery to the human body is the moment that differs the object from the art and reveals the proportions. the question of how to wear an object remains open as it is rather lying on the body than the body is wearing it. while white nudity merges to one scenery the object itself gains in importance.
the jewellery catalogue »connecting identities« visualises the collaboration between designers of six european countries. the gist of the project is the connection between different cultural identities on a creative level.
in answer to photographical impressions all contributors designed pieces of jewellery. the catalogue design involves the beholder in this process while challenging him/her to make up connections by his/her own. a coordinate system enables him/her to retrace the idea of action and reaction as well as it ornaments the pages. it is up to the beholder to either just observe the result or build a connection as well. in reference to the six nationalities which are linked up creatively, six colours weave a pattern all over the catalogue and turn it into an object itself.
