Exeter College students launch new ‘Interlace’ video
16 April 2020
A short video showcasing the work of Exeter College textile students launches today. RAMM’s temporary exhibitions have inspired the piece, entitled ‘Interlace’.
Fashion and Textiles Extended Diploma students work on a collaborative project with RAMM annually. This year, students tackled a live brief to create a textiles piece inspired by RAMM’s By Royal Appointment Devon lace exhibition. The theme ‘Interlace’ allowed students to explore lace history alongside the influence of the natural world on design work.
Students visited RAMM’s contemporary art exhibition Sea Garden and took inspiration from the shape of seaweeds. In addition, photography by contemporary artist Susan Derges and the studies and prints of seaweed provided visual inspiration for the students. The students created a short video piece of their diverse individual work. Exeter College’s Diploma in Creative Media Production students acted as producers. They were under the direction of film producer Dean Ferris.
A collaborative effort
“RAMM is an excellent resource for our students here at Exeter College. We benefit from being on the doorstep and being able to regularly visit and be inspired by the changing exhibitions and permanent display” said Helen Burak, Fashion and Textiles tutor at Exeter College.
RAMM has enjoyed collaborating with Exeter College. Furthermore we are proud to host the amazing variety of styles and techniques that the students produced.
The students’ work was due to go on display in the Courtyard of the museum from 17-19 April. However, due to the ongoing situation regarding Covid-19 RAMM is instead exhibiting their work digitally via their short video (see below). We hope you enjoy the results.
