reTROsponse – revisited

A couple of posts ago I mentioned the exhibition by the students of the 3D design for the Public Realm and Textile students based at HSAD in Hull, exhibited at the Ferens Art Gallery, Hull….

Below are some of the images from the opening night of the exhibition (as promised). All the furniture (created using card only inspired by 60’s Tomatom furniture) and textile designs where inspired by work seen in the Shirley Craven & Hull Traders Exhibition, again at the Ferens Art Gallery Hull.


Above, the Chair created by Gary Morgan that eventually inspired the poster for the show.

Below, as you can see, the opening event was very well attended… lots of wine and snacks to accompany the culture, a really good evening out.

Gary also produced this table design (below) as part of his “family” of designs.

Chris’s irreverent “Boobalier” design was a favourite and now hangs as a permanent feature on the Mezzanine Bridge in the HSAD building at Queens Gardens…

Rachael’s flower-power inspired ceiling light looked great, seeming to change shape as you moved around the space…

A good night had by all, especially the students who got a taste of designing their first Exhibition…
