Is sex a sport? Kama is a collection of jewellery that enhances sex as a physical activity, which is vital for people's health and wellbeing. The series is made up of five pieces for five levels of intensity according to their use by a couple. Composed of glass and silicone and bereft of technology, the Kama pieces are aesthetic and functional. The project claims the importance of sex in the lives of human beings and commits to going beyond our everyday lives in the bedroom. In short, as a social and moral factor, Kama reconnects people analogically to the inextinguishable, adaptable and primordial human instinct to love.

By thinking about trend-restoring models, the idea emerges of creating a portable piece of jewellery that can be held or carried, into which different dishes and plates are inserted. These pieces installed on the body as tools to awaken the senses make it easier for the wearer to try the food they have chosen, thus transmitting the sensations stirred up by these dishes.

YAIZA POZO GARCÍA - "La meva vida en objectes"
The accumulation of useless objects that, with the passing of time, we hold on to as if we were élite collectors. Objects that at some point in our lives we thought would be necessary sooner or later; the "just in case". Most of those objects end up in the garbage. Why do not we learn to get rid of what we know we will not use? "Mi vida en objetos" [My Life in Objects] reflects the accumulation of objects that end up as fetishes, thus provoking a series of pieces that evoke intimate and personal memories.

"La Ruta de la Seda" is a project that consists of a series of pieces designed in digital format and printed with a 3D printer, which was the best option for moving the fibers from one side to the other. We are the daughters of a corrupt society; we are the girls who have not yet been raped; we are the generation that will create the revolution; we are the feminists, those who complain, those who laugh with their mouths full of arguments; we are the herd, we are the ones who shout in everyone's name.

RUT COPONS - "Dystopian worlds"
This project attempts to explore three cinematic examples of dystopian fiction: Blade Runner (1982, Ridley Scott), Mad Max: Fury Road (2015, George Miller) and Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984, Hayao Miyazaki). These three pieces share some points while many others are different. Nevertheless, they express in different languages and in that regard, different materials and combinations have been used to provide different kinds of expression.

NATALIA ARAYA - "Teoría de la cuchara"
The "Spoon theory" is a popular technique used by people who have depression or chronic diseases, perfectly describing the notion of limited energy, with each spoons representing a unit of said energy. I find it interesting how a daily object can go beyond its function and help visualise a problem, raise awareness of time or release pressure from people who need that kind of support. The project was born as I created spoons shaped by hand that were then enamelled in fire, in a process that makes me aware of and value my own time.
