Marie Munk and Stine Deja. Sculpture + video. Munk simulates human flesh, creates interactive sculptures and USES them to form a virtual hospital laboratory of the future. In this way, the two artists explore whether robots can "learn" to become human subjects, and whether human "love" and "intimacy" can only happen between people, and whether they will be replaced by machines in the future.
Bojun Li's work is inspired by machines and architecture. This "hard curve" collection attempts to transform elements of geometric architecture into wearable jewelry, including rings, brooches and pendents, so that it gives people the opportunity to wear a small piece of handmade architecture. Gold - plated, copper and titanium are the main materials of these works. He carved and folded each piece of metal to create geometric shapes and connected them with tiny steel screws without welding to show the possibility of combining small machine components with structural strictures
Inspiration \ "p" Ocean"
Collection of this series is the CSM designer Joarla Caridad potato to make all kinds of bottle cap, her inspiration comes from the pollution of the Marine trash, derived from sea birds eat junk food series, and this kind of food made of material also can be resolved over time, this series of potato cap and is hoping to alert the world of the seriousness of Marine pollution.
I think this work is very novel in the use of food elements, reflecting this element from the side. There is also an element of food in my work, which inspires me a lot and makes me think more

"Jewelry is not only an ornament, but also a medium to express feelings."
This belief is embodied in Sara Chyan's "Emotional Jewelry". When the jewelry comes into contact with the human body, the person's mood or temperature changes, the jewelry's state will also change. From solid to liquid, from monochrome to rainbow. By exploring the metamorphic properties of gallium and bismuth, the jewelry presents different states and colors!
Designers use color to show people's mood changes, which makes me feel very interesting. As it happens, my works also have the relationship between emotion and color, which I hope can give me a lot of inspiration. I am also interested in the materials used by designers and hope to use this material one day
Insomnia is the biggest trouble in modern people. From her own experience, Shania Wang explores how accessories can help and soothe insomniacs in terms of appearance, touch and function. Inspired by cocoons, the series can be worn in multiple ways, with wearers using small objects given to them by loved ones as amulets to gain the courage to overcome negative emotions and thus promote sleep.
This kind of functional work is what I lack. My work has very little functionality. I really hope to be able to do a lot of functional design like this designer

The clever use of magnetic materials in jewelry design enables the jewelry shape to change at will and enhances the interaction experience between the wearer and the jewelry, which is also full of great interest.
I like the material used in this design very much. It has the function of movement. I hope it can be applied to my design.

The circle part of this group of works shows the acupuncture points that help relieve pressure, reminding and facilitating the wearer to dredge the meridians. At the same time, the work is treated with a blue powder coating, which helps to calm the wearer's mind and body and produces a calming effect.
I think this kind of functional work is the part that I lack. I need to learn how to make my work more functional

The event of a thread
A thread of the event is made up of many of the nearby and distant cross: body through space, is a writer's hand through a piece of paper, the voice of a paper bag across a room, is a reader across a page and another reader, is heard and said, "is an inscription cross communication, is a handwritten pen across a slot, is a song across species, is hanging the weightlessness of cross call bell or bellows, is the reward of touch by touch. It is a flock of birds and a swing in motion. It's a particular point of motion at a particular time in space. To be honest, I don't know when I liked it, maybe because the movement of the device was caused by the free-will swaying audience, the device had a lot of interaction with the audience, it was moving, and the interaction with the audience was very touching. I think I need to learn how to deal with the relationship between design and audience. I need to think more, so that the audience can understand and experience my design
