A horse lover brings her intimate knowledge to bear by creating huge sheets of "paper" from manure and knitting a blanket made from horsehair. A self-declared Serendipidist makes a coracle with an in-built drawing machine. A dog lover has entered into the portal of her pet's jaws and made art from its mouth and teeth.
It can only be degree show time. Step forward Tiril Planterose (whose work is pictured above), Matthew Corden (whose work Elvis, Has Left The Building is pictured above right), Joanna Scott and Eilidh McKay who, alongside almost 300 fellow final-year students, will be revealing their work at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art's Degree Show, which opens next Saturday in Dundee.
DJCAD Degree Show is always the first in the calendar of all Scotland's art schools, and this year is part of an umbrella event between organisations across Dundee, Angus and Fife called Ignite, a 10-day celebration of creativity and culture orchestrated by V&A at Dundee in partnership with One City Many Discoveries, the city council's new marketing initiative.
With the all-important nerve-wracking assessments having taken place last week, the students' work is now on show and awaiting its public in a raft of different disciplines. There are 11 subjects to look to: Animation; Art, Philosophy, Contemporary Practices; Digital Interaction Design; Fine Art; Graphic Design; Illustration; Interior Environmental Design; Jewellery & Metal Design; Product Design; Textile Design; and Time Based Art & Digital Film.
An Associates Preview will take place on Thursday, at which guests and students will take part in talks and tours. The larger-capacity talks are free and open to the public, although booking is required. Among those taking part are 2011 Turner Prize winner Martin Boyce.
Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, 13 Perth Road, Dundee (01382 388828, www.dundee.ac.uk/djcad/degreeshow) from May 19-27.
