In this post you can discover a selection of graduation projects.
For example 'Reborn' by Pleun van Dijk in which she provides a platform for ethical questions in relation to repairing of damaged body parts and desire to keep reconstructing ourselves until we are perfect.
Debora Dax's project 'A DRESS Transition' shows a
clothing collection designed for persons born in a male body who like to express their feminine side. "Finding and fitting woman's clothing can often end up as a disillusion for them: The shoulders are too tight, the sleeves too short and often the hips are too wide. Small adjustments in forms and measurements help them to minimize masculien body characteristics and to emphasize the feminine appearance without feeling restricted in their given figure."
'Safe Ground' by Snir Gedasi is a project that presents an aboveground modular shelter with an integrated playground for children in war zones. “All the elements come at a very low cost, allowing Non-governmental Organizations to easily invest in the mental and physical wellbeing of especially children in times of war.”
Floriane Misslin impressed with the project 'Uni—Sex', which is a is a case study in which she distilled unisex fashion imagery to denote its visual language and cultural codes.
"Archived in a book the visual analysis observes how the male and female body is represented in an idealized context of gender neutrality. Considering the images connotations in paralell to sociology and fashion history, the study extracts elements of contradiction between the unisex statement and the visual language they use. Thus the project tempts to propose new codes for a unisex imagery fitting upcoming visions of gender"
Another remarkable project is the 'Forest Wool' by Tamara Orjola's.In this project she presents stools and carpets made from processed pine needles left over from the timber industry. By crushing, soaking, steaming, binding and pressing the needles, Orjola extracts the pine needles' fibre and transforms it into textiles, composites and paper. The process also allows essential oils and dye to be extracted and used.
Olle Lundin presented the projects 'Body Behaviour' in which he explores the body performativity in high fashion advertising and 'Qwearing the Collection' in which he explores how a queer perspective can be used to change the experience of the museum and the art on display in it, therefore provoking further thought and analysis from the visitors.
