Hosting Parasites

1st April 2011

One of my favourite projects from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2009, I am really pleased to see that Kathy Ludwig’s ‘Hosting Parasites’ project has been made into a limited edition product with Galeri BSL

Hosting Parasites are objects/jewellery that can be attached to the body blurring the boundaries between parasite and host. Intimate pieces are worn turning fingers into the limbs of parasites. Made out of skin coloured fabrics they appear to be extensions of the wearer merging into and from the skin.

The limited edition ‘Hosting Parasites’ consists of three oak cabinets of curiosities with each containing jewllery objects which will inhabit the users body leaving an imprint or blending with it.

Made from latex, ivory, textile and silver they are a tactile experience as well as being curiously beautiful.
