Wimbledon Fine Art Degree Show

Took a trip to the deep south last night to check out the wimbledon fine art show.

There was some great work and it was refreshing to see something other than graphic design. I definitely noticed some cross overs with illustration though and I did spot a few things that wouldn't have looked out of place at an LCC show. 

It would be great to collaborate with a fine artist in some future projects as the line dividing the disciplines seems to be bluring more and more. 

Stand out work for me was Ben Webb's performance work - continuous drum roll. 
The piece centered around a single drummer dressed in black, entering a room and playing a snare drum for fifteen minutes before leaving.  The work aims to explore sound, space and environment and how we are made to feel in different situations/spaces.


Other nice stuff...

  1. I love collaborating with other artists. My boyfriend (a photographer) and I try to combine our media from time to time. It allows for new ideas.
