OUT OF THE ORDINARY
PART OF THE UAL STAND IN TOP DRAWER AT OLYMPIA
The exhibition presented dynamic works by independent designers working in the intersection of design, art, and crafts from a selection of emerging students and alumni from UAL at the Pulse/Spotted area at Top Drawer.
The works displayed were part of a selection of digital prints that highlighted the aesthetic of digital geometric abstraction, facilitating a dialogue that takes its departure from art and design but evolves to the use of colour and materiality in the final pieces.
