Dr Sandra Wilson
University of Dundee
Dr Sandra Wilson is an active contemporary jewellery designer/maker, researcher and educator at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, part of the University of Dundee. Her work is inspired by living systems and is highly collaborative working with different disciplines for example life scientists, anthropologists, and psychologists. Central to her jewellery is the potential for the wearer to personalise pieces through their interaction with them. This innovative approach has won awards from the Scottish Arts Council, the Audi Foundation for Innovation, and the British European Designers Group. Work is also in the collection of HRH Princess Anne. Previous research projects have included Pulse: The Stuff of Life (Scottish Arts Council), Evoke: The Meaning of Jewellery in the Digital Age (AHRC), and Tempting Fate: Jewellery & Superstition (Carnegie Trust). On IMprints Sandra is responsible for providing the art & design perspective of future technologies, services and practices and organising the international design competition.
