←Back Home Live Room, Royal College of Art Graduate Show, 2018



Live Room is an interactive installation, a resting place for the wires of the wireless age.

The installation is woven out of disused Ethernet cables, which were due to be discarded following a complete wireless upgrade at the RCA.

During the show I hosted a series of open workshops in the space, where participants were invited to contribute to Live Room by weaving a wire sculpture to add to the installation. In the process, participants learnt a new skill, connected with each other and added to the work. As a result, they left feeling empowered, re-charged and re-energised: ready to explore the rest of the show.

By creating a resting place for both the audience and the Ethernet cables, the work aimed to combat Graduate Show Fatigue, as well as highlighting to visitors the potential beauty in working with waste materials.
