With over 700 art and design postgraduate students, the extensive exhibit of work at the RCA spanned from Architecture to Motor Design, offering visitors a glimpse into the future by way of top emerging talent in contemporary art and design. The exhibition hosted work with exceptional quality, uniqueness, imagination and technical skill.
Housed in the School of Communication were the projects that particularly caught my eye. Tess Dumon’s, Take Shelter, saw a chaotic bedroom setting saturated with a number of different garish pink patterned wallpaper – embellishing every surface in there. The project tackled the overwhelming amount of information we are all faced with daily. Dumon used imagery from pivotal global events – such as the Paris attack – to create these geometric, and almost hypnotising, patterns printed on wallpaper.
A huge pink bunny sat in the corner of the room, which may have looked inviting to those entering the room; however, was disappointingly filled with harsh cardboard. This section also presented projects such as ‘Snapchat me that crisis’, critiquing certain uses of social media, and ‘Pick up the Pieces’, a physical broken wall that addressed the global migration crisis.
