Obsessed! Paper

Life imitates Art imitates…AI? This category of makers are preoccupied with the possibilities of engaging and collaborating with the digital. Screenings of digital alter egos act as a mediator for identity, as well as the endless possibilities of artistic collaboration with digital partners. But also pieces which parody and offend facial recognition technology, as well as playful interrogations of our complicated relationship to the online collective unconscious. With a creative and (mostly) optimistic approach to the digital future, there is no shortage of inquiry into the question of what comes next, and how we can apply it to jewellery.

Let’s Get Phygital is a collaborative project initiated in 2021, exploring digital adornment. For its third iteration, the project is a collaboration between the jewellery departments of the London College of Fashion (UAL), the Estonia Academy of Arts (EKA) and PXLMAD, School of Arts in Hasselt. During the project, students from all three institutions engaged in a series of workshops and lectures, ultimately learning about and creating their own augmented reality adornments. These will be showcased in exhibitions held in Hasselt, Tallinn, and London.

In the dark streets of The Hague, the window of the Das Leben am Haverkamp studio will transform into an open air cinema! Every two weeks a new experimental triptych will be shown, presenting a new generation of image makers. Ranging from experimental film, to animation, to virtual fashion, the presented works explore the body and the act of dressing up as vehicles for change. Transforming themselves into speculative beings, they investigate the politics of the costumed body.

During OBSESSED! Jewellery Festival the films by Lisa Konno and Sarah Blok will be screened. In these documentary/fashion film crossovers, fathers with a migration background are asked about displacement, success and family relationships. Every father wears a fashion collection inspired by his life story and bi-cultural identity.

READY FOR FAKE OFF tells a story about returning to yourself. A universal story about how challenging it is not to be tempted to make rational choices but to learn to trust your intuition. The digital other tempts us to long for more. Bigger, more beautiful, better, happier, tighter….Face-covering masks symbolise the distance between how you show yourself to the outside world and who you really are. The masks are based on the points used for the algorithms behind face ID. The position of the points that are translated into silver rings in the jewelry are the same for everyone. The connection between the points, the steel wires that connect the rings, is unique for everyone.

High velocity trend cycles got you down? Or is your f*cked attention span getting the best of you? Perhaps you are struggling to feel like yourself – or even fi nd yourself – amid the chaos of identity formation’s failing marriage with the pressure to consume.

After a four year hiatus, Kellie Riggs and Julia Walter reintroduce: S04 FOTOCOPY AMS. An essential formula of 13 original and 8 newly added international jewelers and designers offers you the chance to find that sweet spot between uniqueness and belonging, and lets you have that feeling last.
