Computer & Jewellery

The curated project of selected artists took place as part of the Jablonec 2023 International Triennial of Glass and Costume Jewellery. Individual jewellers created a wide range of works on the given theme following their personal preferences or generational perspective. Czech and Slovak jewellers were captivated by visually interesting components, data storage devices and other structural elements of computers, mobiles and other devices loaded with hidden information and capabilities. Some jewellers made ingenious use of computer slang in their works, others succumbed to the magic of creation through computer programs, interacting with CNC machining, laser or 3D printing, and the distinctive creativity of artificial intelligence was also exploited. Several artists devoted themselves to a deeper reflection on the topic of communication and the disintegration of civilization due to the overuse of technology or the fascination with artificial intelligence.
