THE BLANK BADGE is a project by Zoe Brand, a Canberra based maker, wearer and viewer of contemporary jewellery. 

I am interested in the badge as a communicative device. This project investigates how a BLANK BADGE can motivate people to interact with one another and start a conversation. 

How do people react when you wear a BLANK BADGE pinned to your chest? 
Do people expect a badge to carry a symbol, message or slogan? 
Why is it blank? 
Are you waiting for a cause?
