Gedvile Tamosiunaite – We are not so far away, it’s just water

Diploma project with Bruno Ceschel

The two-channel video installation aims to transfer contemporary human emotions into visual digital culture and non-verbal codes. Our desire to connect with other species (AI, nature) is explored through the premise that it is rooted in deep existential fear. This emotional experience requires dominance, seen here as a form of captivity: by investigating artificial environments we create for this purpose, I question whether we can still see ourselves as a part of nature. Lastly, a tactile experience is sought by visually conveying limiting and unpleasant sensations.

Igor Pjörrt – Apartamento

Diploma project with Bruno Ceschel

Growing up between apartments in the same complex, a familiar feeling would remain in the empty homes, encouraging transformation. Such is the experience of inhabiting a body, fluctuating from one state into another. In “Apartamento”, this oscillation takes place in potential constellations around gender binarity. The male/female dichotomy is replaced by a dichotomy between gender and its negation. This renunciation however, is a perpetual shift, a gathering of questions rather than answers, a set of daily contemplations in the face of psychic constructs.

Chris Harker – Entangled Life

Diploma project with Bruno Ceschel

Throughout the enterprise of human civilisation, it has been deemed important to be able to control the natural environment for the benefit of progress, which in turn has led to a tendency to divide the natural and the cultural sphere. In an attempt to rejuvenate an understanding of the biosphere as one of constant cross-contamination, “Entangled Life” emphasises the notion of fungal networks as an encouraging force in decentralising humanity, thus transgressing anthropocentric notions of perceiving the world.

Diploma project with Bruno Ceschel

Our system is a fragile construct. The project examines the outlook on the outside world, shows traces of de- cayed architecture, and reveals fine and fragile constructions and thus our desire for an intimate space, a place in society. Metaphorically, the still lifes show the individual manipulation of artefacts. At the same time they reflect the medium itself and show direct physical confrontation with the material in a spontaneous, light-hearted way. The work is presented in a spatial installation, in order to create a photographic situation and a connection between image and material.

Diploma project with Bruno Ceschel

Virtual reality is becoming an essential means of experiencing interpersonal relationships and changes the way the space between bodies is performed. This project features a series of screenshots that document virtual encoun- ters between the artist and depicted figures – reciprocal performances through screens and webcams. Presented in the form of an installation, the project investigates the female body in space, the locus of relationships and space-time in the digital age.

Photobook

Studio project with Bruno Ceschel

The photobook module introduces students to the history of photobooks and artists’ books and leads them to consider different strategies and approaches to contemporary book-making. In the first term students individually conceptualised a publication that have been designed, printed and distributed in the second term. In Spring 2017 each students publisheded a book that have been launched at Photo London / Offprint London.
