Share your dessert recipes for Arrival: Cake Off at Goldsmiths

On 20 October, a charity bake sale is taking place at Goldsmiths to celebrate Lewisham’s diverse communities and the stories behind their iconic bakes.

If you or anyone you know at Goldsmiths or in the local community is a keen baker, we’d love to hear from them! We’re asking participants from all backgrounds to bake a dessert, share the recipe and a memory it brings to life.

Fill in the Participant Form and submit it to Will Cenci by Friday, 12 October at 9 am.

Work by Goldsmiths Design PhD student at “3 days of fat” art/science event

Taking place at Bush House Arcade, London from Wednesday 10th – Friday 12th October 2018, ‘3 days of fat’ is a ‘live’ art-science event focused on the construction of an island of fat – a ‘fatberg’. The event is part of the research of Goldsmiths Design PhD student Mike Thompson. It includes a series of themed experiments, performances and discussions brining together artists Thought Collider and Arne Hendriks with King’s College London’s Department of Nutritional Sciences and experts from art and culture, life sciences, food, agriculture and healthcare to discuss humanity’s complex relationship with fat, what it is and what it might become.

More information can be found on the King’s College website.

Interaction Research Studio launches ProbeTools exhibition

When: Exhibition open 11th June – 12th August 2018, launching drinks reception Thursday 14th June 2018, 7pm

Where: Ace Hotel London, 100 Shoreditch High Street, London E1 6JQ

You are invited to the exhibition of the Interaction Research Studio project ProbeTools!

ProbeTools are unconventional cameras and audio devices for user research. They’re easy to make, customise and use, and open-sourced so that designers and researchers can employ them in their own studies. ProbeTools are a design-led approach to engaging with settings aimed at producing inspiration rather than information. They involve presenting people with open-ended, even absurd tasks in the hope that their responses will provide fragmentary illumination of their lives, thoughts, hopes and fears. The exhibition will be held in the Lobby of Ace Hotel London and is free entry. RSVP to j.molinera[@]gold.ac.uk.
