Polyphonous: CounterpointTwo projects generated by MA students from School of Jewellery (SoJ) in Birmingham UK and at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing (CAFA), and working with Jivan Astfalck.
Counterpoint follows the idea that students progress through several design phases with increasing complexity, reflecting on their differences in order to realise identity as makers and artists. Counterpoint usually involves musical lines with strong independent identities, while designating a voice or an entire composition. Counterpoint focuses on melodic interaction-only secondarily on the harmonies produced by that interaction.
