Bernabei, R (2018) The Conscience Mirror, Essay written by R Bernabei commissioned by editor S Bottomly for the exhibition catalogue ‘Like A Rolling Stone’. The latter was a collaborative exchange undertaken during the Scottish Government’s 2016 Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design. The jewelled project was instigated by the Italian Cultural Institute (ICI) in Edinburgh and Stephen Bottomley, the then Head of Jewellery and Silversmithing at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA). The dynamic week-long making workshop unfurled in coastal landscapes and was supported by lectures by geologists from the Scottish Gemmological Institute and the symposium Three Italian Goldsmiths..

The interviews were conducted with twenty-five artists from different European countries with the intent of giving voice to their opinions on various arguments including, artistic research, design methods, exploration of materials and techniques, functionality, the body, wearbility and so forth..
