A group of 15 Royal College of Art jewellery students are set to host a live exhibition in London, walking five miles wearing their jewellery in containers, carried on their bodies.
The exhibition, titled Moving On: 8,207,654mm, will take place on January 25. The students will walk 8,207,654mm, the equivalent of 5.1 miles, showing their jewellery designs in accessible containers carried or worn on their bodies to encourage live interaction with passers-by in the street, on the undergound and buses.
The 15 RCA students will allow the public to handle their work in a bid to challenge the traditional notion that jewellery is kept in glass cabinets, or is too precious to touch. The jewellery itself will include oscillating objects and rings made of string.
The students will begin their route at 11am at Royal College of Art in Kensington stopping at city landmarks along the way, including the British Museum and Tate Modern.
They will make a stop at Gallery SO on Brick Lane where passers-by will be invited in to try on their jewellery. The walk will finish at the Design Museum where the students will talk about their experience as part of the Museum’s Unexpected Pleasures jewellery exhibition.
The students will be giving away free tickets for the evening event to members of the public along the way.
