To get an idea about what to expect about the forthcoming shows, take a look back at some of the work from last year…

View some selected projects from last year’s Media School show below:

Berkin Mika, MA Photography

Berkin Mika’s work ‘Trivial Freedom’ seeks to understand whether consumer demand does indeed represent the design of moderns society. The MA Photography graduate uses exaggerated surrealist-inspired sets to highlight the role of pop-culture in the modern world.

Ishita Singh, MA Photography

Ishita Singh unpacks the identity and portrayal of women in India through their media in her project Empowering Women Since 1971. Ishita, MA Photography graduate of 2016, reconstructs these identities in rejection of patriarchal norms still present in modern media-loving India. Discover other work by Ishita on her website.

View some selected projects from last year’s Design School show below:

Laurie Jackson, MA Graphic Media Design

MA Graphic Media Design graduate, Laurie Jackson, explores the rise in popularity of brutalist architecture in his project Brutopia. Laurie’s work highlights London’s current housing and gentrification crisis, emphasising the irony present in the transformation of these structures from dystopian ‘concrete monstrosities’ to ‘luxury’ homes.

Tom Battey, MA Games Design

Tom’s ‘Catbox’ project  is an experimental virtual pet designed to create an emotional bond with its user over time. The MA Games Design graduate’s virtual pet’s behaviours are influenced by research into social psychology and was developed for mobile devices, iPhone and iPad.

Check out some other work by Tom on his website.

LCC Postgraduate Shows 2017: Show 2 – Sound Arts

Launch Night: Tuesday 5 December, 6-9pm (RSVP via Eventbrite)
Exhibition: 6 – 9 December 2017 at Dilston Grove, SE16 2DD

Intensive and specialised, MA Sound Arts enables graduates to develop a conceptual and contextual understanding of sound arts practice and theory. This year’s show – taking place in unusual acoustic and visual space of Dilston Grove, the first poured-concrete church in the UK – will bring you a mesmerising encounter with works that enquire into the relationships between sound and the world around us, touching on the political, environmental, architectural and musical.
