Swirl

Swirl Collection

The SWIRL collection explores the overlapping domain of the continuity principles of the virtual with the physical materialization of the object by melting the precious metal. The jewellery pieces of this collection translate into the physical environment virtual features like fluidity, continuity, never-ending form. These sensitive effects are the unexpected result of the abstract and objective workflow that defines the computational environment. Thus, a subtle process takes place that transfers subjective features into the algorithmic generated forms. But these geometries are also strongly related to the fabrication method.

To take shape, the precious metal is melted and forced into the designed volume. Through the SWIRL collection pieces, the casting process is liberated and remains suggested in the final piece. The jewellery pieces means of creation, both digital form making and fabrication, is perceived in materialized objects. Thus, filiform structures are obtained through twisting that suggests continuity to infinity and are made by 3D printing with resin and casted in silver or gold.
