Honor x CSM

Honor, a leading smartphone e-brand, partnered with Central Saint Martins as technology sponsor for the 2018 Degree Shows.

This partnership explored the intersection between art, design and technological innovation through a variety of projects.

To coincide with the launch of the Honor 10, which features advanced AI 2.0 technology, a select group of Fashion students used the smartphone to document their final collections and a Photo Experience Zone was created during Degree Show Two: Design.

Honor collaborated with Graphic Communication Design students to create new works, including a GIF and theme design for the Honor 10 smartphone.

The partnership includes the new Honor Art prize, an award for a final degree work that celebrates the innovative use of colour and technology in artistic practice. This was awarded to MA Fine Art student Marco Pantaleoni for his series of works in 3D scanning, photography and painting.

Receiving his award, Marco said: “I feel honoured and grateful for this prize, which is an inspiring recognition that confirms the concepts behind my artistic research. Like Honor, technology is an essential part of my practice, and through colour it takes sensitive and meaningful shapes.”
