Memory Palace – Exhibition Review

Memory Palace by Hari Kunzru
Over the summer I was asked to write an exhibition review on the exhibition of my choice. I looked up some different exhibitions in London and decided to visit V&A to see ‘Memory Palace’ and The British Museum to see ‘The Art Of Influence: Asian Propaganda’ I found both exhibitions very interesting but I though ‘Memory Palace’ was a way more exciting to write about. If you would like to read the review that I wrote then here it is!  Memory Palace-Exhibition Review Enjoy!

Back in college we were asked to design our reviews in a way that will make them look professional. Then we had to print 13 copies of our reviews so every student and can have one copy of each review. Our next task was to design a book cover for our hand-made books in which we were suppose to put all the reviews that we had.

I though this project was really exciting as at the end of it I had a self designed book where I could find 12 different opinions about different exhibitions, all written by the people I actually know.

This is the book cover and contents page that I created using InDesign. For my design I decided to use word ‘review’ 12 times as this is how many reviews I have in my book. The fact that each word ‘review’ is slightly different reflects the difference between all of the reviews that can be found in the book. I though it was an interesting way of expressing the content of the book through the visually appealing cover.

Some alternative designs that I created:

And the most exciting part! The final outcome:

Field Trip to Aberystwyth in Wales

Aberystwyth is a small, beautiful town situated near the confluence of the rivers Ystwyth and Rheidol, on the west coast of Wales. I was lucky to be able to visit this wonderful place very recently as a field trip to Aberystwyth in Wales is a part of college induction for Foundation diploma in Art & Design students.

We spend wonderful time in there! And we all had a chance to get to know each other. We visited the biggest camera obscura,  placed our summer projects  – ships models in a Ceredigion Museum, and also looked at links between exhibits from two completely different exhibitions which i found really enjoyable!
