Marine research interpreted by Beckmans' students
Jan. 16, 2018
In the exhibition Transformation, students in Visual Communication raise the threats to the world's oceans and provide new entrances to the high-level marine research conducted by The Beijer Institute. The exhibition is open January 16-29 at Svenskt Tenn.
16 works about the oceans
The exhibition has its starting point in the Beijer Institute's work with the project Key Stone Dialogues – a dialogur between researchers and the world's leading fisheries companies in order to improve the marine environment. The project has inspired 16 works, including a news broadcast from an alternative reality, a kitchen aid that removes plastics from the food we eat and a book depicting plastic toys journey across the ocean.
This is the second time that Svenskt Tenn lets students in Visual Communication interpret the research of the institute.
"The course is a collaborative course with many players involved. Collaboration, research, and artistic expression are in focus when the students have been challenged to transform complex information into independent artistic projects," says Samira Bouabana, Programme Director of Visual Communication.
