What is this all about?

In 2010, Seven Auckland Jewellery Geeks embarked on a mission to get their work out there and seen by Subliminally Infiltrating other people's openings with the work of that evening's Feature Geek.
In 2011, a few more geeks join in the fun and break a few of the original Subliminal Infiltration rules...

Cath Dearsley infiltrates Subliminal Infiltrations at Masterworks 01 December 2010

After four months of solid fun and laughter infiltrating other peoples openings we have Subliminally Infiltrated our own THINKspace at Masterworks.  This doesnt mean it is the end though - we plan to catch up on some deep and meaningful contextualisations of the project and its effects on the population. 

Then we just need to work on our goal of infiltrating the world... hopefully before Bootcamp in February.

Fran and Mary and Yang were our first official visitors.
 Quite an eclectic array of wearables from seven very different makers.  Some punters are a bit confused and perhaps overwhelmed by the variety of work on show, but then started isolating each maker's pieces and become more engaged with the installation as a whole.

 Kristin wears some Cath Dearsley Magic Dust.  Tatjana pointed out that there are always plenty of wine glasses in view in these Subliminal Infiltration photos. Perhaps a glass of wine should be added to the THINKspace installation too.
 The group jewellery show out the front. Garth was quite taken by Lucy's things. Big ups to Raewyn who sold both of her necklaces within the first 30 minutes. Super.
  Lynsay's shoes stole the show again with Martina commenting in a round about way that she might have to kill her for them.
 Kristin had to run off to baby class, so Gillian's Mum graciously took up the Magic Dust duties.  Gillian
wears the slug. Jillian wears one of her many Gavin Hitchings.
 Interesting how many of Cath's pieces have faces.
 The Octopus is faceless but does have many arms that were intent on getting in Sharon's hair.
