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...

Some Handshakers Subliminally Infiltrate the Handshake Show at Masterworks, Ponsonby - 30NOV11

The Opening of the Handshake show at Masterworks was Subliminally Infiltrated by the 'This Too Shall Pass' ribbons by Handshaker Sarah Read and Handshaker Kristin D'Agostino's Egalitarian Project Fungi Badges and quite a bit of bright afternoon sunshine.

Sarah Read's brilliant installation consisted of 60 postcards of earthquake ruined Christchurch scenes, all containing a 'This Too Shall Pass' ribbon with coloured safety pin. Here the lovely Caryline Boreham is turning over the card underneath the one she decided to purchase, revealing a golden side.  As more and more ribbons get purchased, the  future gets brighter for Christchurch.  All proceeds from Sarah's project will be given to The National in Christchurch - how very nice!
