Villainous, feminised, weak and wanting; men in the sensation genre are often seen as lacking. Critical readings of the genre, moreover, have tended to focus on its constructions of femininity, largely neglecting representations of men and masculinity. Examining the under-explored subject of Victorian men, masculinity and sensation, Sensational Men: Victorian Masculinity in Sensation Fiction, Theatre and the Arts represents a timely and important intervention in the field.
Curious was formed in 1996 by Leslie Hill and Helen Paris and has developed a reputation for edgy humorous interrogations of contemporary culture and politics.
As with all Curious shows, Best Before End starts with the question: "Can you ever say all the things that need to be said before it's too late?" It's about failing and falling with a hint of fermenting. It's about finding the right words when the words are hard to find.
"The future of the textile and fashion industry relies on designers creating new, compelling visions for the way in which products are created, used and disposed of. Designers need to think radically about the materials that they are using and the form and purpose they are giving them." In this lecture Dr Goldsworthy will present recent research projects exploring 'Designing for Cyclability'.
The lecture will be a disinterment of short stories about the communication of visual culture from the standpoint of graphic design (it may contain references to corruption, lollipops, rude gestures and murder).
Tim is a letterworker, a practicing graphic designer, type designer, action calligrapher or performance writer with enthusiasm for the use, abuse and reuse of text as a communication device.
Discover the potential of wearable technology with this introductory workshop. Designed for participants with very limited or no electronics or programming experience, this course will appeal to artists, designer/makers and creative businesses, and provides a hands-on opportunity to explore how this cutting edge technology can be used.
AIR Falmouth are collaborating with Creative Skills to deliver this workshop.
We'll be working with the Arduino Lilypad platform to enhance a garment or accessory with a range of sensors that add style or functionality.
In 1964, in London, the shop Habitat opened selling newly designed furniture alongside objects imported from Europe and Asia: ceramic cooking pots, duvets (known at the time as 'the continental quilt'), spaghetti jars, wooden chopping boards, pestle and mortars, rugs, stereo record players, and so on. The 'becoming tasteful' of these items was a crucial part of the success of Habitat as it emerged as part of a lifestyle re-attunement in Britain at this time. This talk will explore the genealogy of Habitat and connect it to large-scale changes taking place in society at the time.
