Here We Are explores the tensions between humanity and technology and the innate desire to utilise the hand as a tool of communication.
Cave paintings have lasted for thousands of years and their presence illuminates the temporal nature of communication today.
Through discourse humanity has transitioned into a society that communicates predominantly through a digital lens.
Here We Are is an interactive installation that encourages audiences to experience technology as nothing technological. Analogue and digital mediums offer a playful revealing of the fundamental and systematic structures that dominate our existence.

Digital Monoliths questions the interstices between humanity and technology.
Stonehenge is a neolithic celestial technology that came into being at a time when technology exhibited a physical relationship to the environment and offered shared experience and community.
The experience of technology today is rarely conceived of or shared outside of the virtual landscape.
Digital Monoliths is an installation that offers a tangible sensory experience of data gathered from visitors of Stonehenge in 2018. Monoliths and mirrors reflect light that responds to sentiment from Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
FENTY Beauty By Rihanna Launch, 7 days of live graphic art.
“It's not often you are tasked with making a 40cm-wide black marker pen, but when it comes to graffiting eight windows RiRi style, you need the best tools in the business. It has taken a team of five people, seven nights and a total of 210 hours to give our Knightsbridge windows the total Fenty Beauty makeover. A teaser was built up over the course of a week with a new layer added every night; featuring 1,200 A4 sheets of adhesive film, 15 cans of spray paint and, of course, that bespoke black marker. Watch our timelapse video of the windows in motion, Rihanna liked it so much she shared it with her 56 million Instagram followers!”

Local is collaborative project between five Royal College of Art students from Visual Communication and Global Innovation Design that highlights the migrant crises. Working closely with leaders of EAL (English as an Additional Language) along with twenty 11-16 year old students both EAL and english speaking were invited to take part in a one-day workshop which questioned the notion of autonomy and home.

Through physical expression, open discussions and collage workshops students questioned what it means to have autonomy in foreign environments.
