Beverly Cottrell - Paper Lab
0 comment Sunday, June 1, 2014 |
On Friday night, the Leeds College Of Art "Ready Or Not, Here We Come" Degree show opened for a private view.
I have been studying in the BA Fine Art department, so I knew how that the Fine Art degree show was coming along, but it's always a great surprise to see all of the finished work from other courses.
In Art & Design : Interdisciplinary, I was really impressed by Beverly Cottrell's "Paper Lab", a science laboratory made entirely from cardboard.
The attention to detail is amazing...

During this project, Beverley worked with high school children, who gave feedback on her Paper Lab project. Beverley says of the placement:
"Making my Paper Lab playful and colourful reflects on the naivety of learning, and interacting with the exhibit promotes the curiosity of learning."
I think that this is a great way to bring the Art & Science fusion to a younger audience. This theory was proven when I asked my 13 year old brother to identify his favourite piece of work from the entire Leeds College Of Art degree show! (My little brother is also a science nerd, it seems to run in the family).
