The tragic tension

Paula López-Nuño (Undergraduate Degree in Design, promotion 2019)

This two-piece tapestry has been programmed with conductive inks, so that people can approach and interact. The book that complements the project maintains the same structure: literal content in the center and encoded bands on the edges. The narration concludes when the user finally folds the book and decodes the hidden message, a third person that breaks into the monogamous relationship. It is the third person who we can hear, but not see.

The physical bond between man and woman represents the tension between the complexity of desire and the simplicity of social norms. However, the tone adopted by this tapestry invites observers to make their own interpretations, based on personal experiences. The plastic deformation that connects both faces can suggest many scenarios: an inseparable monogamous bond, a tense relationship that breaks, the development of the person's consciousness, etc.

I'm A Man

Sergio Conches (Undergraduate Degree in Design, promotion 2019)

I'm A Man is aimed to men to whom conventional male magazines leave aside. The publication leaves the superficiality behind and it is dedicated in its entirety to bring to light the problems that lead to toxic masculinity, serving as a corner of reflection and personal analysis. This is a different male magazine, which focuses on the hidden face of masculinity.
