Postgraduate Open Evening in the Design Department

Thursday, March 19th was an Open Postgraduate Evening here at Goldsmiths, University of London, and the Design department had plenty to offer to visitors.

“Thinking Threads”, an exhibition of MA Fashion student work, opened in the Constance Howard Gallery.  (You can see more photos from the event here). The exhibition will still be on until 17 April.

In the foyer of the Lockwood Building, a display set up by MA Interaction Design students encuraged visitors to discuss surveillance and technology: how far can it go before it makes them uncomfortable? Amongst other activities available at their table: a video installation that could guess (or at least try to guess) if passers-by are “suspicious” based on characteristics such as age and gender.

In the Nic Hughes studios, the Open Evening came with samples of student work, a talk from Tobie Kerridge and a Sustainability workshop:

 

The Design Department also had a stand in the Great Hall, alongside other Goldsmiths departments, where Design staff chatted to prospective students about our courses:
