RE- & DE- Onomichi Residency

In July and August, I was in Japan participating in the first phase of the research and residency project –  Re- & De-.    The project partners are Onomichi City University, Japan and the Royal College of Art, UK. The research will take place in Japan, London and online via digital platforms over the next academic year.  My fellow practitioners and researchers are RCA colleagues Dr Kyung Hwa Shon and Professor Tamaki Ono, and Associate Professor Yukata Inagawa from Onomichi City University.  The project is supported by the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation and the Royal College of Art.

In the Future …. How will we Create?

‘In the Future …. How will we Create?’ took place from 9 November to 14 November 2021 at the UK Pavilion Expo 2020 Dubai. The Royal College of Art is the Heritage Partner of the UK Pavilion, having a 170-year history of shared heritage with world exhibitions, going back to the first Expo, The Great Exhibition of 1851. The RCA’s contribution to the UK Pavilion will bring together a wide range of interdisciplinary projects from staff, current students and recent graduates. I developed and delivered ‘A City in a Day’ project as part of my ongoing research. Four local schools with approximately 20 students participated in an hour’s workshop, each hour a different age of the city’s development.
