Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Goldsmiths campus is now closed and everyone in the Design department is working remotely. This means that the graduating BA Design class of 2020 are facing the challenge of adapting their projects to the current situation.
How are third year BA Design students getting by in isolation? What are they working on, and how are they dealing with the limitations imposed by quarantine on their work? Our brilliant students have become vloggers to document this process; follow them on their collaborative YouTube channel, BAD Isolation.
“If I Get Like That Just Shoot Me”, a short documentary directed by Goldsmiths Design graduate Amy Clegg (BA Design class of 2019), is one of the nominees for the Best Documentary award in the 2020 Oxford International Short Film Festival, which will take place on 28-29 March.
Amy’s film, one of 6 short documentaries competing for the award, was developed as part of her graduation project from Goldsmiths Design and looks into the ever-widening gap between the perception and reality of informal care for the elderly. Amy is currently studying for an MA in Screen Documentary at Goldsmiths.
MA Design: Expanded Practice student Javeria Khan is February 2020’s Volunteer of the Month at CEN8, a non-profit based at Goldsmiths running arts and performance after-school, weekend and holiday clubs/projects.
