Starting this year, MA students in the Design department have the use of new studio spaces based in the Lewisham & Southwark College (LESOCO) campus at Deptford Bridge, a short walk from the main Goldsmiths campus. (Design students shouldn’t be too worried about missing out on the Goldsmiths vibe and connections: the MFA in Fine Art studios are also based at LESOCO.) On the day these photos were taken, the new studios were already abuzz with activity and work in progress.
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.
At the Warden’s Annual Public Engagement Awards for 2018, Goldsmiths Design PhD student Tom Keene was the winner in the Postgraduate Researcher category.
The awards recognise and celebrate the work Goldsmiths researchers at all career stages did with members of the public in 2017.
