Nobel Creations

By on December 5, 2017

The Nobel Prize 2017 interpreted in fashion and music.

The new insights and perspectives that the Nobel Prize gives can be interpreted in many different ways, including through free artistic concepts. On 7-14 December, fashion students from Beckmans Design High School show their interpretations of this year’s Nobel Prize along with music interpretations composed by students at the Royal College of Music. The exhibition takes place in cooperation with the Nobel Center and is displayed in the foyer at the Royal College of Music.

Nobel Prize portrayed in fashion creations

Fashion students at Beckmans Design High School have for several years created free artistic designs of the Nobel Prize awarded each year. It is a design exercise based on one of our most magnificent festivals but also reflects on what creativity and research can mean.

The 2017 Nobel Prize gives new perspectives on human existence. From the molecules of life to the birth of the universe. From our inner biological clock to our apparent place in the world. Both science and literature are about exploring things we have around us but can not always see. To that comes a peace prize that is about the human’s choices to use knowledge for utility or destruction.

Fashion students Jade Cropper Anér and Emilia Utbult have portrayed the year’s Nobel Prize in Physics which praises the discovery of gravity waves in space and the ability to measure them.

– What we early got stuck on in our conformation was the process of how gravity waves arise and how they are measured. Movement and collision became our keywords as well as the question how we could work on the garment outside the body. Even the instrument that measures the gravitational waves, the laser interferometer LIGO, which consists of mirrors has inspired our embroideries, tells Jade Cropper Anér and Emilia Utbult.
