A Journey To Kashmir.
In collaboration with Michael Hall, coordinator of the Art and Design postgraduate studies, and Paul Grace, PhD candidate at the School of Arts and Media, we proposed a short project to Future Design master students with the aim to get them out of their studio/computer routine. We named it A Journey To Kashmir and asked students to explore a route on a journey to a place (Kashmir Foods in Middlesbrough) that is a locus of things that have arrived there from distant places. We asked them to return with their impressions from a three parts exercise journey: Leaving “Home”, Returning and Communicating, and to later develop these into a proposal, for a visual work that communicates their experience of the journey.
In the video Sara, one of the master students, explains us the uses and rituals around of one of the sweet products we find in Kashmir Foods.
