maiko takeda: cinematography collection

for her graduation project at central st martin’s, japanese designer maiko takeda created the ‘cinematography’ collection. each metal accessory is covered in hand-drilled holes of various sizes that cast photograph-like shadows onto the wearers skin.

‘the light, the shadow and the body all work together to create an installation work, in which the shadow remains secret but when revealed forms the main part of the jewelry.’

‘although it is an ephemeral and temporary material the shadow remains a secretive, yet main part of the piece.’ MT
