Sky Lucy Young
Royal College of Art
Sky Lucy Young’s proposal had a strong research component that aims to understand human emotion and behaviour via the design and making of containers for the preservation of objects. There is a craft here and attractive colour and material exploration, both traditional and new. It is interesting and enthusiastically communicated thorough articulation of concept, context and practical funding options.
Sky showed a clear story through images from sketch book to design prototyping. Although still a ‘work-in-progress’ she produces some great solutions and in her reference to her use of Textile Society funding, she touches on 3D printing and digital fabrication as a way forward. There is an on-going dialogue between museum studies and Fine Art textiles that also presents scope for further research.
