Social Catalysts was a jewellery exhibition by Emil Gustafsson, located on the third floor of KHiO:s new gallery. The exhibited objects were jewellery pieces that had an immediate communicative function by facilitating the first contact between strangers. This was achieved either through offering a topic of conversation or inviting to play and physical interaction.
Below follows some of the exhibited works.
