Found in Translation: Goldsmiths MA Design Class of 2020

Found in Translation poster

In this time of isolation and silence we are coming together to be ‘Found in Translation’. 

Join Goldsmiths MA Design 2020 to translate this silence into noise. Whilst working in these unusual circumstances we are transforming our solo thoughts to create a multifaceted graduate design show, which explores personal thoughts and solutions sparked by our current situations.

We are connecting from all over the world through the universal language of dance. It’s not just about dancing, it’s about dancing like no one is watching and coming together as a collective. We want to generate the noise from our own homes, reflecting from when our journey started together a year ago. Placing ourselves in this temporary state of play in an uncertain time we aim to celebrate togetherness. This is an exhibition which will remind us that physical distance can’t stop our studio culture.
