Update: The podcast is live. Listen to the BAJ Podcast of Sofia Hallik and Darja Popolitova!
Through my connection to the BAJ Podcast Series, I’ve discovered the fascinating research of Sofia Hallik and Darja Popolitova at the Estonian Academy of Arts, and their work examining digital contemporary jewellery.
In their recent thesis “Digitally Produced Jewellery: Tactile Qualities of the Digital Touch“, they touch on quite a lot of issues we’ve addressed on this blog in the past: contemporary jewellery‘s relationship with digital creation methods, generative jewellery, and real time simulation CAD’s relationship to product design CAD to name a few.
They also discuss the idea of “owning mistakes in the digital manufacturing process”.
If you enjoy experimental jewellery, definitely give this research paper a look.
