Mike and Maaike’s Stolen Jewels is:
“An exploration of tangible vs. virtual in relation to real and perceived value. Using Google Image Search, we browsed through some of the most expensive and often famous jewelry in the world. The low-res images we found were stolen, doctored, then transferred to leather, creating a tangible new incarnation. With the expense and intricacy of the jewels stripped away, their essence and visual intensity are extracted.
Though their ‘essence’ has been stripped away, I still like the final product, and I think that this is a great alternative to classic jewelry. Napster would be proud.
