Upon listening to Philippa Perry’s podcast series ‘Consumed by Desire,’ I was inspired to use this theme as the project title for our students end of year exhibition. We collectively listened to and discussed all three programs; the students have created individual responses.  

Examples of responses the students conjured up include intimacy and safety in social spaces, ethical issues of exploitation, the desire to fit in and not be sharp or awkward in a given space and indulgence in free hand patterns, exemplifying love and wonder. 

Material & mediums students have used to express their ideas include sound, print, stitch, and drawing.
