Sophia Roddan
Horn's Sack
Art
BA (Hons) Fine Art student Sophia Roddan, exhibited Horn Sack at the 2016 Degree Shows, graduating with first-class honours and opting to continue her studies at postgraduate level, studying MA Fine Art at Plymouth College of Art. Horn's Sack is a large-scale 3D install, based on the treatment of people classed as "insane" in Victorian asylums. Tackling themes of patient coercion and the struggle present in treatment regimes, Roddan draws upon her experience as a school nurse in London and running art classes with the mental health charity MIND.
Siobhan Fedden
Temporary Projection
3D Design
BA (Hons) Fine Art student Siobhan Fedden’s artistic and curatorial practice explores systems within the art world, specifically focusing on the role of institutions and their relationship with technology. Working primarily with moving image, in 2014 Fedden used the opportunity of a residency at contemporary art space KARST to explore the construction of projection spaces in galleries, using found materials within the space to produce the striking 3D structure.
Molly Erin McCarthy
Molly
BA (Hons) Fine Art student Molly McCarthy draws upon a fascination with technology and it's embedded power hierarchies. McCarthy's work investigates new modes of materiality in a post-digital world, examining cyber-frontiers and their effect on the human experience. Transhumanism, failed utopias, and nostalgia are other common themes present in McCarthy’s practice. As part of the college's 202
Louise Riou Djukic
Eat Me Eat You
Art
Louise Riou-Djukic is a multidisciplinary artist working mainly with performance to expose the vulnerability of the human body and psyche. Often drawing from personal experience, her work plays with discomfort, endurance and compassion. In 2016, the Riou-Djukic exhibited Eat Me Eat You, as part of the college's annual Degree Shows. Using rising bread dough for its cultural symbolism, the performance piece underlined female society's battle against food and diet-culture. For each performance, the artist made the dough and then layed in it for an approximate time of two hours, while the dough raised slowly around her body, then she stood up, slowly separating herself from it; leaving a print of her body that didn't last.

Harriet Kotvics
Atemporal
Art
BA (Hons) Fine Art student Harriet Kotvic explores the abstraction of language and human experience through installation. Referencing the concept of Flat Time Theory, Kotvics explores the event between ‘nothingness’ and ‘something’. Referencing Absurdist Theatre (Ionesco, Beckett), the fabric acts as an expression of existential and metaphysical distress in a nonlinear timeline – whilst also intimating the inter-connectivity of the human condition.

Vikki Mc Lester
Fluidity
3D Design
Victoria is a Plymouth based jewellery designer and maker, with a keen interest in the social and cultural debates of gender fluidity and neutrality. Inquiries into gender have allowed Vikki to push the boundaries of jewellery and confront the stereotypes of traditional gendered design. Final-year student Victoria McLester uses the medium of contemporary jewellery to explore gender stereotypes and examine current debates around gender fluidity and neutrality. Victoria's work repeats biological patterns found in diagrams of genitalia to produce an ambiguous mix of elaborate mandalas. These oversized components can be worn as an example of non-conformity, but also can be displayed as a statement wall sculpture, sparking conversations around gender fluidity and global stereotypes.
