Our impressions from the RCA Graduate Show 2011
Show RCA 2011, one of the UK’s most eagerly awaited graduate exhibitions showcasing the final projects from a roster of young artists, designers and writers specilising in various creative disciplines such as applied art, architecture, communications, design, fashion & textiles and humanities has opened its doors to the public earlier last week on 24 June. On the eve of the show, among the habitual hustle and bustle of a show preview, Architonic had a chance to catch a glimpse of, and photograph, some of the final-year projects by the RCA’s talented class of 2011.

'Naturally False' by Whatels, Els Woldhek
On the occasion of this year’s RCA final show Dutch designer Els Woldhek presented her highly poetic graduation project ‘Naturally False’. The series of furniture and lamps consist of a light structure of veneered wooden sticks and surfaces which are connected through a copper plating technique. This process which is based on the electrolysis of copper sulphate acid solution, lets the copper grow in an unpredictable shape around and through the wood.
