2014: MA: Design and Art Direction

Manchester School of Art (MMU)
Undertaken over two years, my research on this MA was centred around an exploration of the supermarket as an exemplar of the kind of anonymous, transient and highly-controlled space which has been defined as ‘non place’ by the French anthropologist Marc Augé and others, and resulted in my producing a body of graphic work based upon the aesthetic of everyday consumerism. Some of this work can be found in the ‘Design’ section of this site, or at http://www.art.mmu.ac.uk/mashow/2014/ian-lowey/
