DΩME is a wearable, unique and fashionable resin piece of jewellery embedded with electronics. It is individually crafted piece and smoothly glows with a gentle and uniform flow of light when it is switched on. It elegantly fluctuates from a non-lit effect to full light in a continuous and smooth manner showcasing the subtleties of the resin colours and textures. The DΩME is velvety smooth to the touch.
For several years, Rita has been exploring the transformative effects of light through her work and has been turning her artworks into functional objects; illuminated painted canvases, resin objects.
“Mixing pigments into resin allows me to play with light, colours, movement and effects, in the same way as I do on a canvas. The added dimension that appears when light shines through the DΩME pieces follows the theme of transformation, which is at the core of all my artworks.” Rita Orsini
The DΩME is available for sale at the June 16 event, and otherwise sold through selected gallery stores and in ARTeConnect online store. Limited edition of 10 pieces.
