A Literature-Inspired Digital Exhibition

Virginia Woolf wrote a great deal about hats and Oscar Wilde was known as a real dandy. Fashion has always flirted with literature and vice versa. In the first collaborative project of its kind of the Writers Festival and the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, we wanted to find out what happens when jewelry and fashion design students are influenced by literary figures. As part of a multidisciplinary course of the Department of Jewelry and Fashion at Bezalel, led by fashion designer Doron Ashkenazi and jewelry designer Shirly Bar-Amotz, students explored the connection between the written word and design by means of literary figures. Four writers were hosted by the course during the year, Sarai Shavit, Sheikha Haliva, Yaara Shehori, and Etgar Keret, who spoke with designer Shahar Avnet. The authors all spoke with the students about their books and how they shape their characters. We are happy to present to you the final project of the course: a digital exhibition that is all about literary inspiration.
