Art and Design End of Year Exhibitions
What's it like being an Art, Design and Architecture student at RMIT? Follow the journey of Vivian, Isaac and Justine, as they prepare for their final end-of-year exhibitions.
Vivian: With the end of year exhibition coming up, I think it's a bit nerve wracking. I've never been confident enough to like exhibit my staff or like show more work to people, so it's a really big thing.
Isaac: There's not a chance I could have done this four years ago, even three years ago. I don't think there's a chance I could have got to this point. I had no idea how to do anything that I've done here, 12 months ago.
Justine: With the end of year presentation I'm hoping we can get lots of play testing done, and I hope to see people having fun playing it.
Isaac: It's a little bit nerve wracking showing this work to so many people as I've showed it to maybe under 10 people.
Justine: Before this course I was making smaller flash games, very simple. I never thought I'd be able to produce a physics game, and I can do that now.
Vivian: Initially I was just playing around with like different colors that I was seeing in those patterns and didn't really represent the culture that I wanted. It was just more like pretty colors.
Justine: So our mentors help us out by pointing us in the right direction with our game.
Isaac: And so my supervisor, when we started this year, said we would keep coming with new ideas and new pathways and pushing us back into kind of more unknown territories.
Justine: Collaboration's really important because you can bounce ideas off each other rather than just working on your own.
Isaac: Talk to me a year ago, this is not what I would've done for this year. Every semester has just brought some really vast direction change.
Vivian: I've never exhibited an artwork before. Getting it more exposed like to more people and having the feedback that people do give me, whether it's good or bad criticism, just to develop my artwork has really helped me gain that confidence.
Justine: I never imagined getting here when I started the course. Yeah, I didn't think we'd be this ambitious and create anything this big.
Isaac: I've found that RMIT more so than other universities are supportive in us really exploring what interests us. If there's a particular material, or a particular type of object that we're kind of curious about, they've been really supportive and kind of pushing us down whichever path we want to go. That's why you see so many different projects in this room right now. You're able to do anything here. You're able to make and design anything you want, so use that freedom.
