We spent two weeks in collaboration with other Level 4 students across CSAD, where we made a small piece based on the brief we were given.
Our group was split into smaller groups of 5 or 6, and each was given an “Invisible City” from Italo Calvino’s novel to base our piece on. The city that we were given was “Andria”, a very organised, clockwork city that looked up to the constellations at night.
Here is an image of our finished piece:
On the day all the groups put up their pieces, displayed in the Graphics Studio, we linked each city with wool according to their economic, social, environmental and cultural similarities. It ended up being a bit of a maze!
I am glad we did this collaboration, as I got to meet students from other courses. However, I think slightly longer would have made it better as it felt very rushed. I’m looking forward to collaborating again with other students in field next year.
