Martine Syms lecture at London College of Communication

Today I sat in on a guest lecture at LCC by Conceptual Entrepreneur Martine Syms. Syms was in London for the Frieze Art Fair, and was invited to speak at LCC by MA Graphic Design Course Leader Paul Bailey. She says “my work examines the assumptions of contemporary America, particularly the way that identity and memory are transformed by the shifting boundaries of business and culture”. I particularly liked the project Everything I’ve Ever Wanted to Know – ‘a diary recorded through three years of Google search terms’. Martine is a thinker, and consequently she makes us think. I’ve included images here of books she recommends, which are now on my Wish List.
