Far from confining in stable orbits, objects of vision aspire to evolve beyond. Design and upcycling are coming out of their perpetual elds to mutate over time ; raw materials and spare parts are mixed to new elements in a deep hybrid research. Through the project VISION ETC. the Jewellery Design, Gold and Silversmithing Department of the Academy of Fine Arts of Antwerp questioned the concept of vision through glasses’ designs and spare parts tracked down by us all around Europe. The collaboration resulted in a 3-day exhibition at our shop, the opening night showcasing the designs through a series of performances around vision and it’s different aspects.
