annual Degree Show showcases the creative talent from our graduating students
from the School of Arts & Creative Industries’ Design, Photography and
out the work from our Class of 2021 here.
of this year’s final projects include:
Design student Christy Orr’s Forget Me Not Boxes
sensory box that aims to comfort those affected by dementia through helping
recall memories. The box contains a set of tools that help trigger the five
senses – sight, smell, touch, taste and sound – helping those with dementia
recall memories and retain identity. The box gives its user the opportunity to
completely personalise its items and is split into four main sections.
student Duncan Thompson’s Fish Out of Water
Out of Water” is a photographic project by Duncan Thompson, examining the role
of the fish and chip shop within its local community. The project took place
around the areas of Burnley and Pendle in East Lancashire, England, where
Duncan is from. These areas were some of the most affected by the
Covid-19 restrictions in England and the role of the chippy during the
lockdown adapted to bring the community together by allowing people to have a
chat in the queue and with staff to ease the feelings of loneliness felt by so
many of us.
Design student Katarzyna Pohorecka’s Mude Bodysuits
bodysuits aim to make it easier for women affected by type 1 diabetes to wear
an insulin pump with any type of clothing. Final year student Katarzyna
Pohorecka has developed ‘Mude’ - a range of six nude-coloured bodysuits that
contain a specially designed pouch that discreetly holds an insulin pump. The
work has been created after a gap in the market was identified for a product
that allowed female insulin pump users to wear their pump under their clothes.
