Observing the observer

Looking back at photographs of the jewellery exhibitions I have visited over the years, I found that most document those who peer into the display cases - they record alternative ways of housing objects and capture the behavioural response of those who observe what is on display. Packaging observes the observer rather than the jewels themselves, documenting my experience of jewellery exhibitions as a researcher investigating display.
