We are currently curating an exhibition of digital work by jewelers
and metalsmiths. This exhibition will run in conjunction with the
2005 Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG) Conference,
Cleveland, OH, June 22-25, and through the month of July. In
addition to the known individuals practicing the creation of digital
work, we hope to upturn the proverbial stone and uncover individuals
applying digital methodologies.
We are examining the implications of digital technologies, and how
the designers, craftspersons, and educators are addressing them.
This exhibition will present a new generation of artists and
educators in addition to the established members of the community who
have adopted and pioneered the digital as a means of reinterpreting,
designing, and making the virtual and tangible objects of our
discipline. Through this call for portfolios
we are seeking to review both virtual and tangible works, by artists
and designers implementing digital technologies into the studio
We will examine the evolution of digital applications, from the
earliest appropriation of digital devices to the most recent
generation of work. This exhibition will include virtual and tangible
objects. It will serve to create an historical record of the
evolution of this medium at a time when significant new ground is
being broken throughout the world, and to demonstrate the influence
of the digital on the jewelry and metalsmithing disciplines. From
design conceptualization to production, from the one-of-a-kind piece
to the mass-produced, we will explore the achievements and potential
in the digital medium.
