Short description of the project:
What role can touch and being touched play in multidisciplinary research fields when written and spoken language is a limitation? How can we use physical, haptic and speculative objects to connect artistic and scientific research? Based on these questions and related to eleven different scientific PHD-research projects from the Wageningen University the students from the Jewellery - linking bodies & DesignLAB collaborated and developed portable conversation pieces that trigger curiosity, invite to wonder, to touch, to communicate through senses, open up a dialogue, facilitate feedback and opens up new perspectives on the PHD-research.
Food, fabric, soil, metal, bacteria, robe, wood, fungi, fat, LED-light, glass, DDT, larvae.
