Carolyn Gordon has created three contemporary make up looks based on Greek gods. The first look is Poseidon, who, in the modern day, has been affected by plastic pollution in the sea. The second idea was Aphrodite, the goddess of love, who tragically ripped her heart out after being heartbroken. Finally, Gordon recreated Artemis – the goddess of the hunt – who, in today’s world, is affected by the destruction of nature. Each look was carefully planned, with props, headpieces and backgrounds. Throughout the project, Gordon adapted to multiple setbacks: issues with contact lenses, painting and wax.
Cleo Sloggett’s project is based upon the experimental testing and manipulation of fabrics: stretching, shrinking, ripping, sewing and burning.
Tamsen Mellor-Gardner’s aims to create awareness of the Save the Bees campaign; she uses colours and fabrics that may not be available in future.
