kimberly nogueira’s automata for the body

Kimberly Nogueira’s automata for the body appeals to my child like curiosity. Nogueira attempts to “ignite a feeling of wonder and curiosity as the wearer activates figures and forms”, ultimately drawn into her message. Wonder. Curiosity. Yes, please and more, thank you.

“Using the traditional fabrication techniques of the goldsmith combined with metal clay and often enamelling, I explore the curious interplay between the past, present and future as it relates to childhood wonder, chance, possibility and responsibility. I draw on my extensive collection of turn-of-the-century and mid-twentieth century vending machine toys and buttons to form these connections.”
