Full Description
How Many Is One encapsulates one of the fundamental questions at the core of art and design. This issue is highly pertinent to jewellery design as a language that seeks form through which to articulate ideas. The oeuvre of Deganit Stern Schocken (b. 1947) has delved into the socio-political question of place, creating works in which text is incorporated as an integral part of the object; in the process the artist has adhered to the classical language of jewellery while employing state-of-the-art technologies. The book explores the architectural-planning aspect in Stern Schocken's jewellery. While each object stands in its own right (like a building), it is also part of a system (the city). The trial-and-error process of casting and the notion of 'value' also play an important role in the artist's work, which alludes to local society and Israeli reality.
