The MA degree show is opening tonight !

This year’s MA Design: Expanded Practice programme degree show is opening tonight at 6pm.

Where does an EGg gO?

Ego is Latin for “I”. In psychoanalysis, the ego mediates between the conscious and the unconscious and is responsible for reality testing and a sense of personal identity. That’s what we’ve always been looking for on our 15-month journey – ourselves. We are like unhatched eggs, fresh and tender, undeveloped, and open to almost every possibility, which can be either good or bad, even something thrown out to express ridicule, irony, or resistance. Each individual’s unique ideas deserve to be respected, just as how our Expanded Practices flourish here. 

Where does an egg go? Into the infinite unknown.

MA ID 02: Andrea Petrucci explores the use of personal data in contemporary times

This year’s MA Interaction Design show is now over, true, but we still have another interview for you! Andrea Petrucci talked to us about his project on personal information and the way it is being used in today’s society:

Andrea Petrucci

What was your background before the MA in Interaction Design course at Goldsmiths?

I did my BA in Media Art back in Italy. My focus had always been on analogue and multimedia installations. I started to experiment with Interaction Design for my graduation project, focusing on tangible interfaces. Basically, the concept was being able to do video editing using objects instead of a screen interface. That lighted up an interest in Interaction Design that brought me to Goldsmiths.

MA ID 02: the 2015 Interaction Design show

Last week, students graduating from the MA in Interaction Design exhibited their final projects in the St James Church at Hatcham, New Cross. We’ve already featured a few of these projects on the blog; if you haven’t yet, read our interviews with Karen Barrett, Tom Hoare and Shih-Yuan Huang.

Naho Matsuda’s project focuses on the hidden, dark thoughts and revenge fantasies that most of us indulge in sometimes. Naho collected stories of such fantasies of murder and revenge and then asked some professionals from other fields to make sense of them: a crime investigation specialist, a private detective, a poet, a designer… Continue reading “MA ID 02: the 2015 Interaction Design show”
