The syntaxes of display common to Collections, Archives, Galleries and Museums is challenged by the ideas and projects of the designers whose works are now presented in our own digital gallery. The formalities that we are so accustomed to, are about to be forever broken, exhibitions are changing as our demands and understandings on how we consume information evolve. We are very excited to present IED’s: Felix Scholder, Ieva Simkonyte, and Grace Pappas, and Illustrator Alexis Demetriades. Their speculative galleries require that the visitors actively immerse themselves in the act of examining the artefacts on show. Whether untangling the narrative that ties together the disparity of objects encapsulated in a single display case, to questioning and enhancing the ecosystem of display cabinets, the future of exhibits will not disappoint.

‘Content free’ means just that: the content on this site is free. Free at the point of demand, and free in expression and opinion. It is a portal into a world of thinking and making. It is a living archive of reflection and activity. It is the place where the students and staff from the Visual Communication programme at the RCA can freely place ‘content’, and where visitors are free to browse and interact with what they find.

In the electronic era, with its always-on, limitless landscape to fill, content has become a weasel word – a generic flavourless noun that relegates words, images, sound and film as placeholder material. Our use of the word is of course, ironic. We take the view that content has to have meaning and offer engagement. Without meaning and engagement, it is just that … content.
