program pdf

  Christel Copp is a swedish grafic designer, illustrator and visual artist as well as a frequent lecturer and teacher at Gothenburg University. Her talking points concern communication through imagery, visual
presentation and symbolism of colours. With her long experience Christel offers unique insight into how the mind interpret colour in everyday surroundings, in artistic areas and virtual environments.

  Daniel Kruger is an internationally acclaimed jewellery artist from South Africa, now living in Germany, working as a professor in the Jewellery Department at the University of Art and Design i Halle.
”I use many different materials, both rich and poor. The forms vary from organic to geometric, the organic however seems to prevail. Texture,
pattern and colour play a big role, as does sensuality both in the shapes as well as in the use of material. Many pieces have a distinct erotic quality. I like symmetry; often pieces are made up of pairs.”
  Carina Shoshtary is a german jewellery artist that graduated in 2012 from the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. In her current series she is literally tearing down her material off the walls. She is collecting colour sheets that separate from walls sprayed and painted with graffiti. The richness of
colours that the graffiti world offers, conform to hersensitivity and
affection for colour compositions.
  Jiro Kamata is a jewellery artist originally from Japan, now living and
working i Munich, Germany.
Jiro combines goldsmithing techniques and non-traditional materials such as reflective
glass materials, eyeglasses and camera lenses. The
inorganic material is brought to life by the light refractions. Beams are
captured, transformed and transmitted to the wearer of the piece. The
colours, shapes and shadows are affected by the perspective – an
interaction between material, environment and receiver.
