Can contemporary jewellery objects that encourage interaction help us to imagine connecting with and observing alien life?
Debby Wang has explored the existence of alien civilizations to understand how individuals in our increasingly atomised society might regain their curiosity about the future and the unknown, and stimulate their creativity and imagination. Her playable, geometric jewel devices lead the wearers to find their childhood ‘self’ in the play, whilst encouraging them to look afresh at their environment. She urges us to “Live in the present.”
Wang’s jewellery explores issues through narrative – for example environmental waste pollution or endangered animals, She plans to return to Taiwan and set up a personal studio and brand.
