Labelled Like Luggage

Labelled Like Luggage from Open College of the Arts on Vimeo.

One of the sheer joys of working at the OCA is the the surprise of opening assessment parcels and seeing the student work, which previously has only been shared between the student and the tutor. (OK I admit I don’t open the parcels personally)
Here is Course Leader for Textiles Pat Moloney talking about an absolutely stunning piece of work by Julie Senior.

  • Who would ever have thought that a piece of brown paper could evoke such memories and emotions ! Fantastic.
    I should add that, as a young boy, I met some evacuees from London in the the Welsh village of Pontllanfraith.
    Some were very subdued, others very brash and loud.
    At the time I didn’t really understand what they were going through.

  • This is such a fantastic piece of work; its beautiful in its own right, but when you appreciate the story that it tells, its both humbling and inpirational. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  • The language used by this Course Leader really worries me. She isn’t describing this material in a Critique fashion at all. I’m not expecting a Course Leader to be over using words such as ‘lovely’ and ‘very’. Lots and lots of words from her, but saying very little. Shame because the person’s work she is talking about does merit proper praise/commentary.

    • You make a valid point, but this was not intended to be a critique, rather an appreciation. Feedback on student work from tutors and at assessment would not be expected to describe work in this way, and we have mechanisms in place ensure this does not happen.

  • Pity about the lack of accessible images. First saw this in Selvedge and found the image/concept fascinating both for Fine Art and Design. I should also add that your website managed to crash my browser. To recapitulate, too many words, too few images.
