This is a strong reminder that Christopher Colville-Walker will be in the Mac Lab on Tuesdays 2-7pm SPECIFICALLY for fashion design students for the next 3 weeks to help with anything digital you may need – this is something you asked for during a forum  so please make full use of his time – it is not acceptable for you to not attend.
Following this he will be in on Tuesdays and Wednesday 2-7 for Fashion Design and Fashion Textiles year 3 students – if there is not an improvement in attendance I will open it as a drop in for all years on all courses.
Thanks

Year 2 Briefing and NOKI project

February 8, 2016

YEAR 2,

I hope you are all well and enjoying your internships. Really looking forward to reading about your experiences and what you guys are up to.

Ok here is some information (and some homework!) that you should be doing in the run up to you coming back.

YOUR BRIEFING IS ON FRIDAY 26TH FEBRUARY 3pm – you will be recieving your timetable and module handbooks for the Identity project ahead.  Everyone to attend, no exceptions, a register will be taken.

There has been a change to the beginning of your project. Instead of copycat you will be doing a live project with DR NOKI. This is an amazing live project lead by Noki himself and he will be coming in the first 2 weeks of term to teach you guys.

Please research DR NOKI, what he is about, his political message and what drives his work. I am attaching the brief to this post, READ THROUGH IT CAREFULLY as to what is expected of you, and what you need to bring to the workshops. This is going to be a really exciting project that he wants to do with you and will be documented throughout – we are really lucky to have this!

Alongside getting ready for this 2 week Culture Jam, you need to read and get familiar with a book that has inspired his work and his message:

‘CULTURE JAM – How to reverse America’s suicidal consumer binge, and why we must’ by KALLE LASN

This is a short book, and  will really open your eyes to our consumer culture and branding consumption – we want you to read this book and write down quotes and themes that you find really importnat. We want you to bring these ideas to the 2 week project.

PLEASE BUY A COPY OF THIS BOOK! Keep it and refer to it throughout your design careers. Alternatively here is a link to the whole book. We want you to read the whole thing. Focus on the following chapters:

  • Introudction
  • Mood Disorders (page 3)
  • The Cult You’re in (page 51)
  • The Revolutionary Impulse (page 99)
  • The Meme Wars (page 123)

MAKE SURE YOU ARE PREAPED BY READING THIS BOOK AND READY TO BATTLE YOUR IDEAS WITH NOKI. Here is a link to the brief:

NHS x MDX Noki Project 2016

During this 2 week project you will still be having turorials with me regarding your Identity project, so make sure you bring visuals ready to hit the ground running on the project. There is alot going on as soon as you come back so make sure you are prepared. Get this information out to everyone ASAP!

Looking forward to seeing you all, if there are any questions you have my email address.
