‘Road Movie’ is a collaborative project between the MA Design: Expanded Practice programme at Goldsmiths, University of London and CAMPER. The students participating in the project were asked to explore and engage with CAMPER’s idea of the Walking Society through the discovery and exploration of the city.
“Walking means traveling – going from one place to another. It also means advancing, improving, developing, innovating. The Walking Society is a virtual community open to everyone: to diverse social, cultural, economic and geographic backgrounds. Individually as well as collectively, it champions imagination and energy, bringing useful and positive ideas and solutions to better the world. In a simple and honest way.” CAMPER Walking Society
“Design always acts as an ‘inbetweener’, a narrative connection between two distinct points in time and space. The nature of this connection, its material and conceptual range (how fast, how efficient, how immediate, how long, how ornate, how timely, etc) is informed by the contextual and ideological framework of ‘the possible’, which lies at its origin”. Professor Roberto Feo, Goldsmiths, University of London
In road movies, travelling is used as a narrative device that allows the writer or director to piece together a story through a series of chance encounters which obstruct the protagonists’ progress of getting from A to B. The traveller therefore can never be just an observant, a passer-by, or a flaneur. Their very existence sets off the series of combustions that create the story itself.Continue reading “MA student work to be screened at the Swiss Church”
