A short summary of your project
Kingston Illustration/Animation class of 2017 are graduating and we want to showcase our work and course to the outside world and get the industry's insight. Together we are working together to challenge ourselves by creating this exhibition, celebrating our collaboration skills.
It's going to be:
22nd-25th June - OXO BARGEHOUSE
We are more, Illustrators Animators who visually unpick the things around us. We use research, investigation and testing to drive content based on looking at the world differently. We take small things and look closer. We take the personal and make it more universal and we take the vast and make it more digestible. Some of us look at social issues, at current affairs, at history, at technology. We’re not always experts, but that lets us asks more questions and provide a different way of thinking. We are natural storytellers who create narrative in the mundane and the extraordinary. The idea drives the process. We film, we draw, we create, we build, we make things move and give them space. We want things to stick more, stay with you. We try to give things a bit more time in a visual world that can become immediate. We solve problems but we also consider their lasting effects. The way we work is rarely linear, we like to jump around and challenge ourselves more. We edit and focus and provide lenses to see through. We lean on each other and support each other, our voices together allow us to do more. Through collaboration we are able to understand our place in relation to others and see each other’s perspectives. It makes us stronger.
