I am Consuelo Keller, former archaeologist turned digital artisan. I create 3D printed and handcrafted jewelry and objects. In 2013 I founded my label [ digimorphé ] with the aim to explore the possibilities and the aesthetics offered by creative coding and digital fabrication to create a new generation of jewelry dedicated to contemporary women and man.
My passion goes into transforming intangible constructs into tangible accessories that enhance the wearer’s uniqueness, individuality and freedom of expression. My creations are digital artifacts that combine advanced technology with traditional craftsmanship: they start with algorithms and sketches of digital models that ultimately become 3D printed rings, bracelets, pendants, earrings and objects carefully finished by hand.
The collections are made employing innovative and traditional materials. I create pieces made of high-grade polyamide and aluminum as well as jewels made of bronze, silver, steel and titanium.
Research and experimentation are important driving forces of my work. I am evolving the way jewelry has been traditionally made, experimenting with new tools, forms and textures and adding new materials to the range of possibilities. I envision a new jewelry practice exploring the potential of digital design and fabrication merged with craftsmanship.
„Sequences of digital zeros and ones meet the intricacies and textures of physical reality turning into contemporary jewels as precious as gold and diamonds.“
Why digimorphé? The first part ,“digi- ”, comes from the Latin word digitus, “finger”. The present-day word “digital” is also derived from digitus. The second part, “-morphé”, is ancient Greek for “form” or “shape”. In [ digimorphé ] these meanings are combined to express the blend of handmade and digital craftsmanship that distinguishes the label.
