Marente Van Der Valk’s ‘Getting’ Trashy’ is a collection of recycled lamps made from all sort of random things like second-hand dyed clothes, toilet parts, cable wheels and pet X-Rays.

Wee Siong Quek’s Soup for Thought is a book of photographs of the designer’s experience of planting tomatoes, making oil from sunflowers seeds, growing basil and garlic, creating wooden utensils and finally eating the soup.

Snail and Sellotape. Zhen Li created an animation based on a relationship between a snail and sellotape. A creature from nature and a mass-produced object reflect within their love story how we seek to find another half that reminds us of ourselves.

‘There’s no certainty as we exist’ by Hwinyoung Jeong explores the relationship of our body with visible and invisible things, such as small wild grasses and bones.

Through a series of jewelry pieces, as a symbol of eternity, the designer challenges our minds and views of the world.

‘Species to Species’ by yet another international student, Jen Yoohyun Lee, is about provoking and guiding through a novel awareness of nonhuman animals living secretly in ‘human spaces.’

Marente Van Der Valk’s latest design is called ‘Getting’ Trashy’. It comprises a collection of recycled lamps made from all sort of things like second-hand dyed clothes, toilet parts, cable wheels and pet’s X-Rays that were playfully rescued and given a new personality and function.

‘No Items’ is a book-project by Thai designer Nattapong Sanpoonsup that explores new ways for using everyday objects.

Andrew Heber created ‘Self-sufficient Tools for the Urban Nomad’, an eco-friendly kit for people to prepare for life that focuses on the issues of consumption and self-sustainability.

The Goldsmiths University Masters’ projects are about much more than just the outcomes, they are a positive way of thinking about the future and learning while making. With a focus on the process, research, metadesign and critical-design, their works are about the way we live or imagine the way we would like to live.

Located at the fantastic underground Mile End Art Pavilion, ‘Making Believe’ is on show until the 24th of September.
