The end of the academic year is coming to a close for most students and, for Cambridge School of Art, this marks the end-of-year Degree Show.

As I move through the show I see a plethora of outstanding work and below is a selection of five that especially caught my eye. 

Alix Odaryuk - BA (Hons) Photography

Deep and tranquil, this photograph aims to capture her own personal experience of mental health. Odaryuk's understanding of mental health disorders really shows as I believe she cleverly depicts the mirage that surrounds this issue. Externally calm but drowning under the weight of life.

Lorea Eslava Zuasti - BA (Hons) Fine Art

‘Corrupting The Fantasy, You are what you eat, Diamonds are men’s weapon’

I found this work repulsive, however, it truly confronts the prejudice women face. Eslava Zuasti really summarises how women are fed by media to act a certain way. From this, she implies we need to stimulate our minds with different media in order to change the way women are viewed.

Jordan Adcock (Director), Alex Bawley (Producer), Isaac Reeder (Director of Photography), Noah Harries (Editor) - BA (Hons) Film and Television Production

Stormin

Beautifully shot, this film travels through the life of a drum and bass MC called Stormin. The cinematography and colours in this short film were amazing. I especially enjoyed the face Stormin pulls when his mother is talking.

Chloe Sayers – BA (Hons) Illustration

The clear photography collage by Sayers shows that illustration does not always have to be pencil and pen. I especially love the way Sayers conjured up new and interesting thoughts by combining unusual objects.

Rosie Flynn – BA (Hons) Fashion Design

I just want this jumper! It’s a perfect example of what a fashion student should be creating, things that are going to sell sell sell! I love the colours, cut and style that Flynn incorporates into her collection. Rosie, if you’re reading this, do you have my size? I’m a short 10.
