Untitled_X earrings originate from two contradictory principles: digital production and hand work, and embody the mutual closeness of human and the machine.
While working on a jewellery, the author is in need of touch and tactility, while an object that is made using 3D printing appears as an empty form, which demands substance. In the world of tech, because the process of work using CAD or 3D printing excludes tangibility, the author is lacking physical contact with a work of art. That is exactly why in these series of works the artist razes in a way the digital tarnish from the surface of the printed object by implementing hand work and traditional jewellery techniques. In this way a 3D printed object gains an emotion.
