Interiors Year 2 Studio 01: Rise and Shine
Andrew Siddall, Iain Hales, Chiara Cola, Suzanne Smeeth-Poaros
In imagining a successful 24-hour city we will aim for a diverse night-time vision: a vibrant nightscape engaging communities, workers and visitors with culture, performance, celebration, places to socialise. Covid-19 has impeded our human instinct to connect. We are discouraged from touching our friends, families, shun strangers and fear the surfaces of our city, this has led to mass sensory deprivation. Can we build a 24-hour London whilst combating the Sensory Deprivation of the Covid City?
Interiors Year 2 Studio 02: London Calling
Kaye Newman, Janette Harris, Luigi Simione, Cristina Morbi
The studio is concerned with the notion of time, some people believe it’s a part of a greater collection of subconscious senses. We are interested in peoples use of time, their engagement with it and the environments they inhabit and how they make time relevant, active, meaningful and alive. The studio will explore the notion of time through the voice, the written hand and the materials for publishing through two projects using the spaces within the Whitechapel Gallery.
Interiors Year 2 Studio 03: Red Rose Haven
Cecilia Sjoholm, Laura Encinas-Ortega, Theodora Alfredsdóttir, Patricia Mato-Mora
Our site is Whitechapel Gallery, a public art gallery situated on Whitechapel High Street. As well as exhibiting the work of contemporary artists, the gallery organises activities that involve the local community. Studio 03 will operate in the interstice between East London’s artist communities and the neighbouring City, with its workers and commuters racing between the office and their suburban homes. Specifically, we will investigate what the future holds for this symbiotic relationship.
