Title Re-contextualised transcultural artwork: re-imagining pattern and symbol of the nomadic relic in the digital era
Author(s) Bang, S

Abstract My research is a practice-based PhD that investigates how new forms of jewellery and objects can be created by combining traditional and digital technologies. These include the ancient jewellery technique of filigree and 3D printing technologies.

In order to produce innovative jewellery and objects, I explore actual and imagined cultural interactions between Sillan (ancient Korean), Bactrian (ancient Persian), and Celtic cultures through their relics. These three ethnic groups have rarely been linked together in the historical or theoretical literature of transcultural discourse. I employ ‘imagination’ as a key method to connect the three different cultures. My application of historical, fictional, and imaginative approaches forms the basis for making artworks in order to address my understanding of transculturality.
