Artisan welcomes Vivien Bedwell, jeweller and artist to discuss her work Way Finding, which is features in Agency by Design: Expressive Design for Disability. This work is from Bedwell’s Body Cues series and was recently included in Nuda Vita an exhibition scheduled during Munich Jewellery Week 2019. Bedwell’s work reflects on the way society deals with illness and disability by extending from the body as an accentuation, a projection of communication, possibly causing a sensory limitation of communication for the wearer. She interprets the way the human body experiences different spaces and environments and is interested in the participatory aspects of objects and the real and imagined spatial complexities surrounding the human body.
