Bahar Badiee - MA Interior & Spatial Design

Bahar Badiee is an MA Interior and Spatial Design student at Chelsea College of Arts.

Where are you from?

San Francisco, California in the USA.

What are you working on at the moment?

I'm working on a series of spatial narratives in the form of photographs and installations, devoted to the birds of war like messenger pigeon's during the two world wars.

What's surprised you most about studying at Chelsea?

The open structure and the freedom given to choose anything that we would like to work on.

And what's been the highlight of your course so far?

I have been enjoying the building. It is amazing to work and study in a historic structure such as Chelsea. The ceramic workshop is my favourite spot. 

Having Tate Britain next door is also pretty special.

Any advice for the next generation of Chelsea students?

If you are looking for a course where you can try and practice anything that you couldn't try before due to limitation of workshops and/or lack of support from your supervisors for your creative ideas, Chelsea is the place to be.
