‘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.

Modern thought may find no better star to steer itself by than that of ‘visual communication’. The term already says so much to me as a writer. But why stop there? Nothing is fixed in a living discipline: other terms such as ‘graphic design’, ‘communication design’, ‘graphic communication design’, ‘conceptual design’, ‘disruptive design’, speculative design’, ‘narrative design’ have all been used t...

Sisterhood

Inspired by the hierarchy of feminism past and present. I have created a 5 image comic strip to explore the ideology of ‘Sisterhood’. The idea of Sisterhood was sometimes mis-used for power and equity. As feminists we are all equal and must represent and include all female, male, non-binary and gender fluid people in order to create equa...

Striptease and Bunny Tales

There is seeing and then there is looking. I like to think of the difference between the two as a quick readjust of the lens so that everything that was slightly blurry and soft beforehand is now clear. A subtlety of focus. Closely related is the difference between hearing and listening, which is an argument we’ve...

Curly Haired Twats & Other Insults

My mother: The Curly Haired Twat. I know what you’re thinking – you can’t slag off your own mum, especially not on Mother’s Day. But if you’ll only give me a chance, I think I can explain. She was called a curly haired twat by a riled service user when she was working as a Socia...
