‘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.

Report on the state of grey affairs. Friday 03 April 2020

I’m starting to worry, just a bit. I’m starting to worry that, soon enough, there won’t be much for me to report. It might be completely trivial to worry about something like that right now, when you think about it. But still. The thing is, grey is there now, and there is not much e...

Zoom Zoom Zoom

I recently wrote about the privatisation of university buildings1 and how that’s a Bad Thing™. Between the time I enrolled and graduated at Camberwell College of Arts, the building went from being largely open to the public to a situation where access to the building, and movement inside it is tightly controlled by access cards, remo...

Report on the state of grey affairs. Friday 27 March 2020

Hello. I’m chiming in to confirm the general progression of grey. It is definitely here, and it’s settling in. No doubt about it now. Or actually, so much doubt, leaving none when it comes to the installment of greyness. I wish I could show some figures to demonstrate this. I wish I could use quot...

Report on the state of grey affairs. Monday 23 March 2020

I don’t know where to begin. I just feel like there is a need for an update on the current state of grey things. And I feel like it is my responsibility now to keep people informed, to bring news from the field. Vanity, probably. Who am I really, to take on the job. What ri...

bpm playlist 4: invitation to the voyage

A total departure from vocals - towards relaxing electronic and instrumental tracks, perfect for a deep space journey to the next world. If literal space travel isn’t for you, perhaps a relaxing trip with your hallucinogen of choice, breathing exercises or a gentle jog around the lake. Listen to bpm playlist 4: invitation to the voyage by...
