Gravity, 2004 – 2007

Cities attract millions of people each year, seemingly growing with no discernible pattern or pre-established order. They encapsulate time and serve as living examples of the evolution they’ve undergone, presenting various layers of information that coexist simultaneously.

I view the city as a gravitational force that draws us in, forming a multicultural, multidimensional environment that fosters the creation of numerous relationships. It is a human-made landscape that simultaneously provides numerous opportunities. Cities grant us identity, and, in turn, each of us contributes to shaping that collective identity.

More about the exhibition

In 1963 the first ever exhibition of graphic design took place at the Royal College of Art. Graphics RCA: Fifty Years tells the story from the exhibition of 1963 and traces the development of the School, through the impact of digitisation, the influence of RCA graduates on the creative industries and the role of graphic design in the future.

The exhibition features rarely seen works from the RCA archive, including typographic experiments, early examples from pioneers of digital design and print and designs made at the College by RCA alumni who have gone on to become leading practitioners.
