Tahira Mahmood, Foundation Diploma in Art and Design (3-Dimensional Design and Architecture curriculum area), talks about liminal space and the ideas behind her final project ‘The Art of the In-between’ ahead of this year’s Foundation Show (11 – 13 May 2017).
As the Foundation Show is about to open, we take a moment to celebrate a stellar year for the course.
The College is about to open the door on the Foundation Show sharing the work of this year’s Foundation Diploma in Art and Design students.

Celine Clark, Foundation Diploma in Art and Design (Graphic Communication Design curriculum area), discusses her time in the Futuro House and the inspiration behind her final project ahead of this year’s Foundation Show (11 – 13 May 2017).
Brooke Wilson, Foundation Diploma in Art and Design (Fine Art) student, discusses her final project ‘Essence by Reduction’ ahead of this year’s Foundation Show (11 – 13 May 2017).
Today, four Central Saint Martins Foundation Diploma in Art & Design students will enter the Futuro House on the roof of the College and will not leave for four days, six hours and 45 minutes – the same period of time it took the Apollo 11 space mission to reach the moon. During this time, Celine Clark, Amy Packwood, Scene Peng and Isobel Whalley Payne will all be living and working within the structure. Continue reading
