The BA (Hons) & FdA Surface Design exhibition took over the entire thrid floor of the workshop block at London College of Communication’s Summer Show Two. The exhibition space was a warren of hugely varied patterns which manifested themselves in innumerable ways from ceramics to skateboards. The diverse nature of this course’s exhibition make it one not to be missed.
Geometric patterns were a recurrent theme throughout the exhibition. Leah Nelson employed the style by marrying classic a classic Art Deco design with a vibrant tribal print in her final collection ‘GEOWOOD’.
The impressive, large white installations by Joe Kelly, inspired by a use of space in urban environments that are “continuing to become subject to commodification” demonstrated how diverse the subject itself can be.
A touch of nineties psychedelia was injected by Oscar Whale’s collection of clothing and festival paraphanalia inspired by his military heritage, including swirling fluroscent camouflage print hats and baggy tracksuits – not the kind of get up to keep you hidden at a rave.
Perfect for hanging out or doing stat jumps in Elly Maddocks ‘Tunnel of Fun’ however which brigtened up the corridors with luminous patterns inspired by man hole covers.
There were some more earthy, organic projects in the exhibition including ‘Bush Tale’ by Emma Michelle, a delicately detailed collection of objects and prints inspired by a fairy tale displayed in a darkened room with wood chip coating the floor transported guests to a mystical forest, without them ever having to leave the Elephant and Castle.
