About the work
‘Medically Instructed Jewellery’ is a new approach to the term jewel, "shifting the concept of value and luxury towards a debate on medical science and body design by starting the production of exquisite powerful objects, loaded with emotion and sensuality but cut through with social comment thus generating a discussion on the new direction of social rituals, the relationship between design and science, and the problems that arise when aesthetics meets ethics." Zellweger, C. (2008), Zellweger, C., Woffenden, E (2010)
Having as a starting point the exploration of a merger between anatomy, medicine and jewellery, this project focuses on the combined use of actual surgery tools and their replicas in order to create jewellery pieces that are intimately related to the human body, without ever being dissociated from their original function.
The intention is then to turn the distasteful into the desirable, to switch the response from rejection to attraction.
Once there is the need of suturing a wound, is proposed that, instead of mere surgical staples and suture threads, the patient can choose to suture his/her wound with silver, gold or platinum staples and suture wires/chain, thus turning it as if embroidering the skin and flesh with precious materials, leaving to consideration the choice of adorning the body with a ephemeral or permanent piece of jewellery, that can beautify and eventually re-shape the scar.

About 'O menininho aventureiro'
The story revolves around an orphan boy, he names himself Capi - from Capitao (Captain), meaning that he is the captain of his life. Through his sailing journeys he learns with different people on different islands about how important life really is and moral values too. By the end of the story he becomes a man that once was a little boy scared of sharks that now has a family. He encounters people with precious meanings, and they teach him how gratitude, respect and family love is essential. I wrote this based on my childish imaginations: I always caught myself dreaming of sailing to different places, facing obstacles and overcoming them. I still have a very adventurous spirit.

About the work
Words are powerful, and it makes people take action. Over time, the words may take on different forms until they cannot be read anymore. If that happens, are people still willing to touch the work? Fingerprints on the work will never disappear though; more will only hide it. The artist takes on a physical data collection rather than a computerized version.
