Diamonds, Gold, and Dreams
The project “Diamonds, Gold and Dreams,” takes place within the 4,000-square-foot, Jean Nouvel-designed Cartier Dome at Miami Art Basel. Inside will be a seven-minute “floating diamond” projection that will be accompanied by a musical score. It will be projected hourly. Lynch, who was lent gold and diamond jewelry as inspiration, had the dome outfitted with walls covered in gold fabric, gold-printed carpeting and gold-trimmed display cases.
“Who better than David Lynch to create the stage for Cartier objects?” said Frédéric de Narp, president and chief executive officer of Cartier North America. “His universe contains secrets, mysteries, extravagance…and this is what Cartier is about.”
