In 2011, Brooklyn-based painter Irene Wood launched History+Industry, a jewelry line born from her desire to translate ancient artifact to powerful contemporary adornment. The pieces are infused with elements of royal costuming but function as protective armor for the day to day. Hand-built by Irene in Brooklyn, NY from materials ranging from metals, semi-precious stones and painted wood, each talisman provides an opportunity for its participant to imagine and foster their own personal mythology.
“Beyond the edge of the world there’s a space where emptiness and substance neatly overlap, where past and future form a continuous, endless loop. And, hovering about, there are signs no one has ever read, chords no one has ever heard.” -Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
Another Dimension imagines new spatial conditions that shift basic paradigms in order to conceive new wonders.
