Finding Beauty “Imperfect”

The research project Finding Beauty “Imperfect” focuses on the use of contemporary narrative jewellery and metalwork to counteract the incorrect marketing and misconceptions that create anxiety in today’s society. During the year of study, Chang Guo has come to believe that the source of the work, the process of making it, and the practice of making it are important to the project as a whole. Through the use of narrative jewellery design to express the appropriate themes, Guo was able to reflect on the materials chosen and the problems that arose throughout the process and solve them. Critical practice tested the properties and weight of the materials used to make the piece and the impact on the outcome of the presentation. Further reflection and exploration of the interaction between the maker and the wearer, and the response the work will bring to the viewer. In this project, Guo will reflect and summarise the development and outcomes of the whole project process.
