As part of the Design Informatics seminar series we are pleased to present Gosia Walton, our current designer in residence. Housed within a series of aluminum walk-through structures resembling half-constructed stud walls, Gosia’s luminous acrylic sheets present semi-transparent surfaces that are flattened depictions of space. Grids, directional arrows, simulations of three-dimensional architecture; all these patterns feel like they are floating in an unreachable virtual realm. Kowalski and Walton, both Polish, also have architecture in common. This skill and practice indeed influenced their artistic vocabulary, their vision as well as it gave them a sharp sense of experimentation, an ultimate perfectionism and the ability of making the visitor plunge into a metrical universe with its specific space and grammar.
Gosia Walton completed her Interior Design - BA (Hons) at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) in 2012 and then studied for a Contemporary Art Practice - MFA which she completed in 2015. Her first solo show, Laser Erotic, is at Galerie Pact in Paris.
Talk is free to attend and all welcome.
