Well, it certainly has been an exciting day and a half already with so many interesting presentations it is hard to keep track of. Just too bad that I have some kind of stomach bug that has made me sick all night and I am now experiencing the lectures through the fog of a splitting headache.

 

Yesterday was a very intense day, particularly to meet so many people from so many different places. The majority seem to be from Europe or Latin America, with only a small contingent from the US, but in total there are over 30 countries represented here. It is certainly interesting to see how all have their different approached to making jewelry and all the issues attached to it.


This mornings lectures were started with Ruudt Peters presentation about his work, he had only half an hour to cover thirty years of work, but the transcendence and universality of his work became clear. There are probably too many interesting talks for me to talk about. Today though will be interesting with a number of artists presentations coming up. We just listened to Manon van Kouswijk, head of Rietvald academie in Amsterdam. Off to the next lecture- as I am writing this from the computer in the National Library of Mexico there is only limited time for me to have access.

 

Later I will try and figure out how to upload immages from my camera, so stay tuned!
