Last week, Royal College of Arts students, from multiple disciplines, returned to Margate to present their interactive exhibition ‘UNEARTH THE UNREAL: What You See is Not What You Get’ following a workshop session with us at our home, Marine Studios. Huge congratulations to all the students who presented a wide range of interpretations, all thought provoking, some beautiful, some funny. Using mechanical, digital, sensory techniques to demonstrate a number of ideas and narratives, we we very excited by what they all do next. Keep up the good work Teams Apple, Raspberry, Lemon and Grape!
Last week, Royal College of Arts students, from multiple disciplines, visited Margate to present and test their ideas for an elective, culminating in an interactive exhibition called ‘What You See is Not What You Get’ that will take place on Thurs 28 November at Marine Studios. The RCA elective combines practice and theory investigating what links human physical and mental perceptions, and how ways of seeing leave us susceptible to illusions. An empirical journey into self-understanding and into audience. Students tested their ideas to date, to tutor Dr Carol MacGillivray and HKD director Kate Kneale. We look forward to seeing the end results soon at the exhibition UNEARTH THE UNREAL. Thursday 28.11.19, 6-8pm
HKD celebrated their 10th birthday in their seaside home – Marine Studios the other week with a supply of cakes that put the Great British Bake Off Final to shame. Thanks to all the contributions – not only to the cake, but the Studio’s 6th iteration of the Adventures in Comics competition that explored the theme ‘Two Halves’. Great to see many faces from the past decade as we look forward to the next!
