TRENDVISION, the trend forecasting team from Vicenzaoro led by celebrated creative director Paola De Luca and joined by a highly talented team of jewellery specialists and designers, will present a forward-looking presentation on “DREAMSCAPES” at trade event Vicenzaoro January that will focus on the impact of new technologies and creative inspiration on jewellery production.
The multi-media presentation, DREAMSCAPES Between Reality and Fiction pushing the boundaries of the Jewellery Sector, will take place at the Vicenzaoro trade show, in the Teatro Palladio between 11.00 and 12.30 on Saturday January 21, 2023, and will look at how creatives, embracing new technologies, will harness their imaginations to test new frontiers in jewellery development, pushing the boundaries of reality.
DREAMSCAPING is the tendency to seek distraction and relief from unpleasant realities, especially by seeking entertainment or engaging in fantasy.
“Virtual reality is a form of escapism,” says Paola De Luca. “The notion of creation and looking towards the beyond has expanded over time: in the first decades of the 20th Century we witnessed culturally disruptive avant-garde movements such as Surrealism. Now the imagination is taking creativity to fantastic new frontiers.”
The TRENDVISION presentation, which will incorporate some of the concepts featuring in Vicenzaoro’s TRENDBOOK 2024+, will include insights from leading experts in their field at the Vicenzaoro show, including:
