In outright contradiction to this we see that a diamond, while made of the very same element carbon performs the most intense reflection of light on earth. The MIT team is offering the process for any artist to use. We are presenting the literal devaluation of a diamond, which is highly symbolic and of high economic value. It presents a challenge to art market mechanisms on the one hand, while expressing at the same time questions of the value of art in a broader way. The Redemption of Vanity exemplifies the bond between art, science, and luxury.
The carat vivid yellow diamond in the exhibit spent millions of years in complete darkness, deep below the earth's surface. It was only recently unearthed — a once-in-a-lifetime discovery of exquisite size and color. Now the diamond will relive its journey to darkness as it is covered in the blackest of materials.
The Redemption of Vanity is an art project conceived and designed by Diemut Strebe.
We are one church in nine local congregations across the state of Arizona.
