Here’s an highlight from Max Kohler @maxakohler’s project ‘Teaching Machines to Draw’, BA (Hons) Graphic Design @camberwellual .
.
.
‘My final year at Camberwell College of Arts was focused around the idea of teaching machines to draw. It's something that humans have been doing for a long time, from Gutenberg's printing press in the 14th, Jaquet-Droz's drawing automata in the 18th and Google's DeepDream in the 21st century. I engaged with this history through primary research, building a number of drawing machines using different mechanisms, drawing mediums and control algorithms. The result is a body of research containing photographs, written notes, Javascript code, physical prototypes and drawings completed by the machine.’

  • #PrideInUAL – TRANS ARTISTS AND THEIR VISUAL JOURNEYS. Introducing Natalie Wearden @nataliewearden, BA Print and Time-Based Media graduate at @wimbledonual. Wearden is a performance and visual artist based in London, ‘interested in queer intimacies and ways of being okay alone.’ Wearden expressed that their art is a way of controlling a personal narrative, understanding personal growth and human experiences that are too often over-simplified and misunderstood, ‘as a queer person it is so important to be seen and visible in a way that you want to be understood’ they said. Wearden’s art is a way of coping with life’s experiences, be this the distant friendships within their life, the transitional period of graduation, or understanding gender and identity. Significantly, Wearden’s degree show ‘The Best Thing I Ever Made’ encapsulated the journey of their own identify and state of mind after a graduation. In a ‘ritual’ performance, Wearden printed onto tracing paper 3000 of their own Instagram photos, deleting them as each photo was eaten and the caption of the photo was read out. A cleansing of the soul, a way of removing the past and transitioning into a new being. ‘I wanted to make myself blank, I wanted to remove everything,’ they said. By borrowing from Roman Catholic motifs, and re-owning a tradition they grew up with, Wearden used this right of passage to celebrate a new stage in their life. . . .

  • #PrideInUAL: TRANS ARTISTS AND THEIR VISUAL JOURNEYS – Introducing Tom Coates @coatseyy, Fine Art graduate from @csm_news. They use their work to encourage growth, through art that is inspired by science fiction and absurdism, linking this to gender, sexuality and their own identity alike. ‘I make these weird creatures of different kinds, one based on a henry hoover, a huge egg, one giant purple thing, all of which are slightly based on domestic familiar things.’ These familiar things attempt to promote an understanding of our view of the unknown. There is always a familiar ‘home like’ element within the objects, concepts, theories and identities. By looking deeper, we accept and understand that these ‘different’ things are not so different at all. ‘We might all have these differences, and growing up people do try and homogenise us, making us believe there is a certain way to be, but we all know that lurking under the surface there is a big human mess, because humans are not all the same, we are all different and unique.’ Tom attempts to create an understanding of people through their art. If people looked at a familiar aspect within each other, and understood that human identify is far more complex than we wish to accept, it will create a more welcoming and understanding environment for everyone.

  • #PrideInUAL – celebrating diversity and inclusiveness at UAL with @jofetto, BA Fashion Photography graduate from @lcflondon_. I “FEENK U FREEKY” is more a hymn of rebellion rather than an editorial, shouting against all gender conventions that still affect our society nowadays. This project aims at redefining the boundaries of beauty by bringing back a strong sense of primitivism, characterized by Andrea Delorenzi’s designs for his new collection
  • Only one week to go for #PrideInLondon, and we’re delighted to confirm our presence at this year’s parade with #PrideInUAL. The UAL LGBTQ+ Network has organised a walking parade to celebrate London Pride week and UAL's diverse and supportive community. Our parade will be fronted by a UAL branded truck housing our massive sound system and an DJ to proudly show off the inclusivity of UAL. 
The LGBTQ+ Network at UAL was established in 2008 and is open to UAL staff who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning and other identities. Formerly called Queer@arts, the group aims to progress an LGBTQ+ agenda at UAL as well as organising social events for its members and other ‘ally’ staff members who wish to support the community. “UAL is committed to celebrating our rich diversity and to creating a supportive, inclusive environment where everyone can be themselves.  That’s the main reason I agreed to be LGBTQ+ Champion for UAL and why I am delighted to announce that we have taken the decision to go for the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index. The Index is an established benchmarking tool which allows organisations to measure their progress on lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans inclusion in the workplace. As part of the process, we will need to demonstrate our work in 10 areas of policy and practice which impact staff and students.
This is an ambitious pan-UAL project which will involve the Diversity team, the LGBTQ+ Staff Network, the Students’ Union and staff from right across UAL working together to ascertain what’s already going well and where we need a bit more focus. I am confident that taking part in the Stonewall Equality Index will demonstrate to current and prospective staff and students that we really do take inclusion seriously.” - Natalie Brett, UAL Pro Vice-Chancellor, Head of London College of Communication & LGBTQ+ Champion.
