CraftCubes at DMY Festival
This year the DMY festival will be showing jewellery developed by Jayne Wallace and researchers on SiDE’s Connected home and Community acitivity. DMY Berlin is a key date on the international design calendar and the launch of CraftCubes coincided with the festival’s focus on advanced technologies, digital media and design, displaying the work of makers who engage with new technologies in their practice. The aim of the research-based CraftCube series is to champion and expose to a broader audience practice-based research that explores the boundaries of contemporary craft and its relationship with digital technology.
Developed as part of a partnership between the Crafts Council and SiDE, Jayne’s cube houses a collection of pieces that reveal a trajectory of digital jewellery research into memory and memory loss. The selected works are reflective pieces based on source material gathered from care staff at Alzheimer’s Society day care centres and people living with memory loss as well as in-depth co-creative research with an individual living with dementia. The freestanding CraftCube is a complete, experiential display environment containing objects and dynamic interpretation. It is compact, lightweight and suitable for display in museums and galleries, libraries, higher education galleries, corporate environments or at events, conferences and festivals.
