fashion space

So there's currently a short group project im working on called Fashion Space. Thought i'd
update on more recent goings on since i've spent so long putting up all my previous works!

Our chosen concept is to create a very interactive technology based exhibition, inspired by the Decode exhibition on at the V&A. (http://www.vam.ac.u
k/microsites/decode/) Our exhibition called One Per View see's Sony collaborating with a number of creative's to create 12 rooms exhibiting Sony's products used within the designer's created room. The anticipation throughout the exhibition is a feeling of anxiety, making the audience feel like they are on a ride rather than simply viewing objects, hence the use of interactivity creating a journey. With 12 rooms at different sizes, only one audience member per room it is a very unique and personal experience, recorded throughout and played back to them in the final 12th room taking them by suprise and re-inforcing this idea of anxiety.

With two parralell exhibitions, one in Tokyo, Japan, and the other in London, UK, we have created the exhibition to communicate with one another in rooms 5 and 6 which appear in the middle of the exhibition. These rooms allow Tokyo and London to interact using Sony's latest products. S
nibbe Interactive, collaborating with Sony on a number of rooms provides the interactive side to Sony's high technology.

Within our exhibition we guarantee an experience like no other, playing on your senses, forcing you to get past obstacles on a large scale, crouch in uncomfortable positions, bombard you with strange smells and make you touch unsightly materials, using themes of trickey through malleable materials and creating this sense of anxiety through forcing you to do certain things, throwing uncomfortable images at you. All the while you are communicating and inetracting with all parts of the exhibition whether it
be technology based or with timeless classic materials introduced in a few rooms to throw off the participant.

So now that i've introduced to you an outline of our exhibition, here is my developing floorplan. And there are no doors in view as it slides open from the wall when it is time for the participant to move on! look forward to further updates!

cd cases: age of echoes one

i will remember this day

so bright the vision

the sky's the limit

in the shadow of the sun



mini project, mini teacups

(for a mini two week project back in september!)

Inspired By A Fusion Of My Collages On Both The Design Festival And The KTZ Show At LFW I Mainly Used Textiles As My Medium Of Experimentation So It Progressed Naturally To Create My Final Consisting Of These Four Illustrated, Painted And Knitted Tea Cups.

My Main Focus Of Inspiration Was The Colours And Patterns That I Found At Both Shows.
I Was Really Taken By The Broad Use Of ‘Design’. Not Just Limited To Fashion Clothing But Home Ware, Sculptures, Art Pieces And Digital Design.

teacup design inspiration from esther@esthercoombs.com

I Wanted To Express That Fashion And Design Is A Form Of Art, I Created These Tea Cups To Be A Part Of Home Ware As Well As Moulding Them Into A Sculpture Like Form, Working Together To Create A Piece Of Art. Very Much Like A Collectors Item They Could Be Arranged To Form A Model In Various Ways, I Wanted To Create A Novelty Set.


cd casing: age of echoes

at some point during my album cover art project, i thought maybe no image would be a good way to emphasise the raw emotion of the music. with age of echoes being a spiritual band no image would also symbolise purity. and with its relaxing, dream qualities, entice the audience to listen and produce their own imagery. which how i came up with this image. however i decided to continue forth with the images i already set in motion for the tracks, which i should put up soon enough!

mini illustration book part two

simply because i absolutely loved this project heres a few more from my little book! im still contemplating whether to neaten them up on illustrator and add color or to preserve the free natural quality i had anticipated for the project itself. Hmm We'll see. enjoy!

and some more..


And That's it!



here are some polodroid snaps from my album cover art process. for the track 'so bright the vision' i wanted to use natural imagery, concentrating on colour and light and these photographs are from my earlier stage in this process.


mini illustration book, raws

here are some of the collages i did for this same project. and this really is SOME. i had a heap for this project! considering i love to randomly collect things and draw on the spot this project really was an incredibly enjoyable one!
