Common as Muck, 2015 A note-to-self in the form of a large typographic, hand-sewn banner After leaving London, the piece acts as a mantra to live by. The 3766 individually hand-sewn, mother of pearl buttons are a direct message of undeniable graft and respect to family, friends and anyone that has ever supported or criticised.

Inhabitation, interrogation & rehabilitation, 2008 Computer generated animation with sound, 4 mins 29 seconds Inhabitation, interrogation & rehabilitation is the final film of my MA project which explores the relationship between the notion of social trust and physical architectural space. The film focuses on the discussion between architectural space, the decline of trust and the reconstruction of trust. It demonstrates an unstable spatial travelling by the character whose behaviours being constantly questioned, suspected, watched and distrusted. His journey through various architectural sites of imprisonment, interrogation and rehabilitation reveals how the architecture reflects the phenomenon of marginalisation by the force of normalisation.

Sleepless Dream, 2012 Digital print ‘A dream’ defined by Bill Domhoff and Adam Schneider, is ‘a report of a memory of a cognitive experience that happens under the kinds of conditions that are most frequently produced in a state called sleep.’

the capacity to dream with it. As a result, synthetic dream technology is developed as a way to escape from a sleepless existence, exploring the desperate desires to recover an essential human experience.

Sleepless Dream explores the mechanisms of dreaming; visualising successive images, ideas, emotions, and sensations using digital technology. It shows a dystopian future in which the absence of deep sleep prevents humans achieving the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) stage of sleep, sacrificing

Sleepless Dream challenges the notion of dreaming, bringing a new way to the “royal road to the unconscious” with the use of surreal-but-real technology.

T1-T4 Cast Aluminium (wall mounted) Carnalia Bronze, ceramic, latex, found object The two sculptures in this exhibition are part of a body of work that is driven by a desire to express psychological and emotional states. Although the initial investigation of form might start from personal experience, there is always an element of searching for continuity from the ancient. Deriving out of the personal there is an awareness of the wider socio-political and economic climate of fear, expectation and feminism.

Enzyme-catalysed coloured solutions for textile colouration, 2015 The search for more efficient and environmentally friendly alternatives for the processing of textile fibres has seen an increased interest in enzymatic technologies being investigated, largely due to their elimination of adverse effects on the environment caused by conventional chemical treatments used in the textile sector. The research presented investigates the potential of enzymes as a creative tool for novel textile colouration and surface patterning. The new processes

developed suggest alternative processing solutions, ones with reduced energy consumption with lowered environmental impact. The project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AH/J002666/1) and forms part of a collaborative project between De Montfort University, Loughborough University and industry partners Camira Fabrics, Speedo and Teresa Green Design Studio.

Jumping Into A New World, 2015 Silk Dress The collection’s theme is Jumping Into A New World. The concept is to lead people to find a new side of themselves when they wear this dress. I have used photographs which I took under the sea for the print design. Diving under the sea always inspires me. I want people to have a similar experience when they wear this dress, to experience the feeling of happiness and joyfulness. In the production process I use 100% acid dye, which creates beautiful vivid colours on the silk. To make the dyes stay on the silk, I combine anti-shabby and shrink process after printing. Although the material is still fragile, I have made the printed silk high enough quality to sell in a department store.

Up, 2015 Jo Gibbs transforms the abandoned to the sublime by etching patterns onto various different objects. Her background in textile design shines through in her work, which tackles her concerns about the lack of sustainability in the creation of new items. She explores the changing fortunes of lace as currency and its ability to express social standing by using ‘upcycling’ and

‘Netching’, a brand new method she has created, which involves transferring lace patterns onto the surfaces of overlooked items. With this process she breathes new life into objects in a completely sustainable way. Her work is aimed at people who want one-off unique items.

Object with One Hole (No. 15), 2015 The project is about the progression of a physical object into the digital realm, negotiating boundaries of sculpture/design, physical/digital and virtual/’real’. In a reversal of current digital production techniques 13 Objects were actually hand made using the broken mould. The objects were then digitalised and are slowly rotating on the screen.

What if sound was space?, 2015 SoundScope is an art installation offering a spatial journey through music. This imaginary space proposes an alternative to conventional configurations of music performances. It translates music into an immersive landscape of lights in motion. Merging sound and space, SoundScope proposes a synaesthetic experience to the audience. The image in this exhibition depicts multiple projections onto translucent material that the art installation uses alongside surround sound technologies to create an augmented

3D environment responding to music. The amplitude, frequency and duration of each note is translated into a unique pattern in motion. The sound, visual and spatial language of SoundScope is inspired by water motions, from rain to storm, agitated to calm seas ‌ This mathematical and emotional translation aims at providing the visitors with an intuitive spatial insight into music. It is set in a reflective environment enhancing the endless nature of this imaginary journey.

The Views of the Urban Wanderer, 2014 This project departs from the thesis that successful social spaces within a city are created through the ability to wander and encounter different moments of surprise and discovery. Through the analysis of different users and their preferences for engaging urban obstacles, a generative system was designed and used to provoke wandering in between existing destinations around the site. Using the proposed redevelopment of the Shell Centre as a starting

point, a large building mass containing residential and commercial space is carved through with circulation routes. Different viewpoints and placement of intersection points are set up to guide different types of users, allowing them to discover unfamiliar places within an intensifying space. As a result a new form of public space is formed, interlinking programs and users.

LIKAY PLAYING, 2012 Playing with lights and shadows, this work is greatly inspired by a traditional performance of “LIKAY” : the stunning decorations, the colourful costumes, the dazzling jewellery, the arrangements of accessories on the bodies and heads of the actors and actresses. By creating a mock-up Likay stage, the audience is able to interact with the piece as the shaped lights and cast upon their

bodies as if they putting on a Likay costume, getting ready to put on a show. The objective of this piece is to communicate an idea and to reassess our attitude and conscience toward the origins of being Thais by associating a more positive emotion with the word and meaning of “LIKAY”.

Marrakech, 2015 Fascinated with the bustling cities all over the globe and their wealth of culture, Zoe Norton is intrigued by how travel contributes so much to our personal happiness. Her concepts are based on the dream we all have during our busy day to day lives of ‘getting away from it all’. Zoe’s work looks at the connection between designer and consumer, aiming to create prints that hold a connection and evoke emotion to the user and in turn create product longevity. On display are examples of Zoe’s products, which include digitally printed lampshades, cushions and bespoke one off prints, which she creates to order.

The photographs exhibited represent projects completed whilst working for Design and Innovation Consulting Firm IDEO Designs On Ageing Over delivery, 2014 Designs On Ageing was a part of a semi-annual publication by IDEO called Designs On – a collection of concepts and provocations around the tricky, vexing issues of the day. In the case of Designs On Ageing, we were tasked with designing for the growing ageing population. Today home delivery is available for almost everything, but with speed being the top priority, most couriers are paid to drop and go. There’s no time to help you with fiddly packaging, much less chat, or share a cup of tea.

Over delivery provides customers a few minutes of care and conversation, paid for by a mix of recipients, senders, and even local governments. Background-checked and working on behalf of multiple delivery services, our Over deliverers are friendly and familiar, offering help with simple tasks like unpacking heavy boxes or figuring out how a new toaster works. Over time, they can look out for signs of a change in health or capability and suggest other services, so you can maintain your independence.

Holiday Inn Express guest experience design, 2014 In 2014, Intercontinental Hotel Group asked us to revamp its Holiday Inn Express brand in Europe – everything from public spaces, to food and beverage, digital and guest room interiors. In our research, we learned that people staying in limited service hotels are value-conscious and independent but expected more out of the hotel than just a place to rest their head. We created a series of principles that informed every part of the hotel experience. These led to ideas like a to-go breakfast with a more focused menu selection, a continental-style bar in the lobby for a quick perches, a bed with power outlets and a headboard

to support working on a laptop and a smart TV to allow guests to stream their own media – all intended to help guests maintain the flow of their stay. To test our principles, we built a fullsized prototype of the new Holiday Inn Express experience using foamcore and IKEA furniture. Over the course of several weeks, we showed guests and hotel staff through the experience, building and iterating our design with them. This led us to a blueprint for the hotel design which offered a simple, efficient and unfussy experience for the smart traveller.

Anna Baranowska COURSE

MA Interior & Spatial Design 2014 PROJECT

Enter Void, 2014 This light box is part of the project Enter Void produced for Baranowska’s graduation show in 2014. Enter Void engages with a personal history of an unreturned library book, Sämtliche Erzählungen by Franz Kafka. A narrative unfolds that is ‘directed’ and ‘animated’ by Baranowska to capture a moment where the private and social overlap. The book was originally taken out of a library in Berlin in 2002; however, when Baronowska tried to return the book in 2005 she found that all traces of the library had been obliterated by a shopping centre. While this project concentrates on ‘returning’ the book it simultaneously ‘unwraps’ a story of its past events. Enter Void explores different ways in which we perceive past time frames and distant experiences, including history, by ‘digesting’ and superimposing these onto the real world, and the present.

BA/MA Interior & Spatial Design 2013/14 PROJECT

Constructed, 2015 Constructed is the work of an Artist Collective who’s intention was to develop the film that straddles the boundaries between physical and virtual environments. Fine Artist Luke M. Walker’s paintings are an amalgamation of invention and observation; how a cityscape might be constructed through a series of frames of the sky, how buildings meet, break and contain it. They explore processes of rhythm, composition and transience. The paintings were the scanned as a starting point for the film. Reuben Nanda and Agata Lis are both Artists and Film makers who worked on the translation of the paintings from the analogue to a digital realm to allow the processes of change to be articulated in other, more immediate ways. Musician, Matthew Hardwidge composed and played all the instruments in the accompanying original score. Paintings: Acrylic paint on Canvas, scanned with photoshop. Film: Adobe After Effects. Music: Protools

The Animistic Side of Inhabitation, 2014 In her conversation with Janice West, reported in The Uncanny Room, Professor Caroline Evans emphasises her idea about houses (and therefore objects) having a peculiar grain or patina. A house treasures a very strong resonance, a sense of history and the life that people had led in it. Each house generates its own unique situation. ‘To dwell means to leave traces. In the interior, these are accentuated. [...] The traces of the inhabitant are

imprinted in it.’ The Animistic Side of Inhabitation investigates this particular value of a house, it aims to open up to the public this idea of places and objects having a life. Do they live a life of servitude merely dedicated to the satisfaction of human needs and desires, or do we in some sense serve them while leading our own lives?

Jacqueline Lefferts COURSE

BA Textile Design 2012 PROJECT

Mannequin, 2015 This project is meant to challenge the status of makers. It is also meant to challenge designers’ acceptance of tools without questioning the tool’s efficiency or modern relevance. Why is weave subservient to fashion? Why do fashion designers always take the fabric from weavers and cut into it? Why is design separate within itself? Why can’t garments be woven the same way they can be knitted? Mannequin loom is a tool that allows materials to be directly woven onto a form creating a seamless 3-dimensional woven structure whilst simultaneously making a garment. This process leaves behind no waste. The mannequin can be taken apart to store, and would require

minimal packaging for shipping. The form is taken from a 3-D scan of a male mannequin. After designing the structure it was laser cut from wood. The material used to weave directly onto the mannequin loom is an engineered tape yarn that was constructed with CAD software and then laser cut. Not only does this method reduce waste, it also eliminates steps from the supply chain, for example, the sewing process is eliminated. This would also reduce the carbon footprint (garments do not have to be shipped to multiple factories etc).

Disillusioned, 2014 Dyed Damask, Digitally Printed Cotton and Embroidered Damask Disillusioned encapsulates both the fundamentals of what I learnt at Chelsea and the development in my creative practice. A rewarding aspect of my own work is the distinctive quality of the pieces and being instantly recognisable as having emerged from my hand.

Disillusioned has an emblematic quality that was intended to have a piercing presence in order to be domineering. Combining a variety of textile techniques gives the work a tangibility that engages and captivates the viewer.

Untitled, 2015 The sculpture exhibited is a continuation of turning my highly photorealistic rendered work into physical objects. Interested in the idea of illusions within familiar materials, I was commissioned to produce a pillow and orb by Joe Duke for his personal collection. My work often references 21st century

perfectionism and idealised textures. Producing pieces such as this which are interpretations of rendered images aims to help us understand how we are affected by idolised virtual imagery seen on screens when confronted with the actual form in real life.
