BM 2015 PENDANT

Carnival Of Mirrors asks three essential questions: within our media-saturated world, where products and people, consumption and communion morph into an endlessly diverting spectacle, who is the trickster, who is being tricked, and how might we discover who we really are?

BM 2015 PENDANT

Post by Sgt Pepper » Thu Jul 30, 2015 9:22 am

Okay, I have received a few PM's regarding the meaning of this year's pendant design. So with that, let me break it all down...

BM 2015 is called "Carnival of Mirrors"

"This year’s theme is about mirrors and masks, mazes and merger. It will be a kind of magic show that takes the form of an old-fashioned carnival. This Carnival of Mirrors asks three essential questions: within our media-saturated world, where products and people, consumption and communion morph into an endlessly diverting spectacle, who is the trickster, who is being tricked, and how might we discover who we really are?"

So lets break it down even further... the trickster: look at the man carefully on the pendant? You see the jester head piece? Yes, we made him a jester. Tricked: the circles on the pendant represents the jester's juggling balls - its talents to amuse and awe! Discover: The diamond above his head represents opening the mind as to discover our hiding talents. And why a square shape on the man: you know when you go into the house of mirrors and its morphs you into many different shapes? Well, when you visit the BM structure this year, hold the pendant in front of the mirrors and let it morph into different shapes.

So there you have it... our pendant for BM 2015.

Sgt. Pepper,

What a nice pendant and with a special meaning.

Is this one made from titanium like the beautiful BM bottle opener that you made some months ago?

That is a great design - I love the subtlety of the jesters hat!

There's a pendant made from titanium?! Whoever you are out there, I love you. In fact, all you metal pendant makers rock.

Tory,

Yup. That is the bottle opener. I still love the "case hardening" color.

Dope pendant, kinda looks like a scraper for snowboards...that thing would fit snug on top of a compact mirror or bike light!

I love it! Very nice work!
Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.
