Paper worlds and conscious creativity

  • Sam Pierpoint

    Illustrator & paper artist

Date

Thu 6th June 2019

2pm

Venue

BCU STEAMhouse – Lab Room

Duration

40 minutes

Lately I’ve been trying to focus some of my personal projects on the natural world and conservation to help raise awareness and highlight the ever-growing gap between humans and nature.  

What we communicate through our imagery can have a massive impact on what is considered to be the social norm. As creatives we produce imagery that millions see everyday so lets try to make it mindful and contest what we don’t agree with so that our work fits in-line with what our world needs today.
