Digitally Yours is seeking connections…
We are an interactive, virtual space debuting during New York City Jewelry Week 2020.
Digitally Yours explores the relationship between digital realms, image, communication, participation, and jewelry. We are calling for applications by jewelry artists, designers, and makers that document and present their work and create virtual access and context.
We are seeking to highlight makers and their response to the increasingly vital role of virtual interaction as we live in a new world of social distancing. We are asking the question how is this distance and digital existence changing the way we interact with objects, people, and the handmade?
