Built on a multidisciplinary approach, ABSENT PRESENCE aims to create jewelry at the intersection between contemporary art and fashion. The approach is to incorporate contemporary methods and materials in the classic jewelry art. Absent Presence is utilising new technologies to create new forms from existing ones. For us, artist is a technology.
Inspired by generative art, collection TIME looks like glitch. Jewelry has been produced using the method where minimalistic traditional pieces merge, creating the new unique shape. The objects freeze in motion trail, creating the illusion as if time stood still. Each piece of jewelry is handcrafted in Bangkok by Dutch goldsmith Martin Dautzenberg, using 925 sterling silver and 18ct gold.
