2013

Greed, emptiness, beauty, mortality and intimacy are the sources of inspiration for artist Ted Noten’s anti-jewellery objects. By desecrating the jewellery and robbing it of its status and familiar appearance, Noten shows its symbolic value.

Noten’s insistence that high-tech products should also evoke a sense of unqiue handcrafting calls into question the supposed opposition between craft, desing and industry, hig-tech and low-tech - Chris Reinewald, Dutch Design Jaarboek, 2013

Committee

With this series of products, Ted Noten provokes in an ironic way discussions about the female identity from a male perspective. The result is visually stimulating and provocative, and fuels the viewer’s curiosity.
