The Belgrade Connection

Anyone remember Mr Squiggle? - some kid would send in a few lines scribbled on a piece of paper and Mr Squiggle would turn it into a masterpiece, creating a drawing that was impossible to envisage even for a child. I loved that show.

Well the concept exists in real life too, with a bit of a deviation from the original theme!!

Our friends (metal crafters) and their colleagues from LOD exchanged seeds with 7 jewelers in Belgrade this spring. The seeds, or fragments from their daily work, were sent in a jiffy bag for the recipient to interpret and develop.

The project is a joint co-operation between Swedish IASPIS and Serbian Cultural Front, and the results can be seen at an exhibition at LOD that begins this Wednesday and goes until November 1st.
