London Design Festival

So much good stuff going on in London this week as part of the Design Festival. We went to the Kemistry Gallery in shoreditch to see Alan Fletcher's, Mind over Matter exhibition. It was really interesting to see all his research pages, it really reminded youhow important it is to gather as much visual research as possible!

We also went to Outline Editions in Soho where Noma Bar was exhibiting his cut-out prints that play with negative space. He's also got a huge die-cutting dog in the middle of the gallery where people can produce their own cut-outs which looked pretty cool.

And then we went to the home of the Design Festival, the V&A. The textile field in the Raphael gallery felt like a really weird fine art installation, it was very surreal, but also very comfy to have a lie down on/in(?)...

Outside the V&A the huge 'Timber Wave' installation by Amanda Levete Architects was really impressive. A 3D lattice-work spiral of oak, it really announced the Design Festival arriving at the V&A.

Final self initiated project of 1st Year

By mixing up the colours of their food and not leaving their vegetables til last, children realise its not such a hardship to eat their vegetables. In this collaborative project with Jed Carter we produced images and a proposed storyboard as a way of encouraging a new healthy meal time routine.
