Hull School of Art and Design   2008/2009

Coco Crampton

My installations are composed of objects and sculptures that I have developed using elements of familiar handcrafted utilitarian pieces and more mass-produced design classics as building blocks. I treat the potentials of mass-production and cottage industry without hierarchy and combine and contrast them to question their relative perceived values.

I found that I had a lot of support and encouragement from technicians, tutors and students throughout my time at Hull School of Art and Design, which meant I was able to get more than I could have anticipated out of the experience and as a result I would thoroughly recommend the scheme to others. I spent my time in the silk-screen printing workshops developing a series of prints on paper and experimenting with other printable surfaces such as wood and fabric. I produced a range of printed materials which I am using in the design and construction of three-dimensional works. Some of my work from the AA2A scheme is going to be exhibited at Zoo Art Fair and also in a Voewood Projects exhibition in London in October 2009.
