Jewel of the day: Olivia Wong I am, You Are Locket
The Ontario College of Art and Design University (OCADU), located in Toronto, has a fantastic jewellery program.
2017 graduate Olivia Wong created this as one of three pieces for her thesis project, titled I Am, You Are, and is in her words part of, “a series of three objects. By researching how objects are able to create social meaning, these objects create a discussion and dialogue about the issues of sexual assault. These objects carry dualities that are discovered when worn or used. These dualities include targeting/watching, manipulation and comfort/discomfort.”
