The degree show at the Royal College of Art is always a fascinating insight into imagination-made-tangible. I was intrigued by Lauren Dutton's architectural project envisaging supplying body parts for donation whist providing a substitute mourning site, using memento mori grown from cell cultures. The out-of-body aspect, emphasis on ritual, and the stunning graphics all combine to suggest 'gothic Avatar'.
Also at the show was a project by Alison Thomson called 'The Chronic Facility' which uses food as metaphors for diseases and symptoms. A lot of Alison's work is medically related and deals with ameliorating unpleasant experiences. Her website has details of these projects.
