humans we are: graduating student exhibition at alchimia

Humans we are

11 students presented their graduation work in an installation in the Alchimia school gallery, demonstrating their “state of mind, their continuous research, their acceptance of failure as a necessary condition for growth, their desire to grow, and their curiosity [about] existence.”

The installation kept up to the Alchimia aesthetic standards and utilized a current design trend of suspending furniture and using it out of its normal context. The student work demonstrates a certain amount of material (mostly non-precious) and theoretical research, although as far as art jewelry objects, I was almost more interested in the installation itself. Some of the work had a distinct relationship of our humanism in as much as the materials seemed to have had direct contact with the maker’s body in its actual formation. The student-designed and published portfolio “look-books” were each unique and beautifully executed, proving the importance of artists’ identity and visual promotion.
