Chiara Scarpitti

Italy

My work comes from research that is both theorethical and experimental. Every piece is the final result of a long and complex process of thinking, design and production. My inspiration comes from history, from ancient immaginary and poetry. The aim is to reflect, from an antropological point of view, about the sense of materials, tecniques, shapes. I see the jewel in a sort of dialectical relationship with the poetic and visionary dimension of us. The works bud from a crossbreeding of materials and techniques, both digital and handcrafted. The same mixing is made between different tecniques as haute couture tailoring techniques, digital prints, industrial chemical cut, laser cut, rapid prototyping. The work explores the reactions between the jewelry and the body, people and the space around them. All is finalized to investigate a new kind of jewel as an intersection point between craftsmanship and industry, humanity and technology.

The Design Research
The technical and aesthetic composition of artifacts is the metaphorical model aimed to express a vision about the world of the objects. The change which we glimpse at the horizon announces a transformation of productive processes, both materials and immaterial. Necessarily the Design must be a driving force that puts the thinking at the center of project through a deep path of transdisciplinary knowledges. This way of making research opens the door to a new form of culture, which harmoniously blends the disciplines of humanities, such as philosophy, aesthetics, anthropology along with scientific disciplines such as engineering materials, new machinery and technologies. This hybrid approach produces a new way of making objects and explores a new existential dimension of the human being. The products of this research are devices to reflect for a better future.
