BA (Hons) Visual Communication graduates talked to AUB after their London Summer Shows. Here Abigail Medd discusses her work
Can you tell us about your work?
I looked at my family project. I’m half Chinese and I got two concertina-style books that slotted together. One side was for my mum and one side was for my dad. They both had their opinions separately, so I took them into different rooms so they couldn’t hear each other. Then I asked them the same question. My idea was to try to get their reactions on how they felt about their situation. For my mum it was about coming over to England and for my dad it was getting my mum over to England. Then through the centre I looked at our family now and how lucky we are because of that. So it looked at racism but with more of a positive twist.
How have you found your three years at AUB?
It’s been really, really fun. I met so many great people and there’s a beach – you can’t really go wrong. It’s been really lovely and I’d 100 per cent recommend it.
What do you plan to do next?
I’ve already got a couple of internships in London set up which is really exciting. I really want to get some experience in London.
