A Limited Edition

utility?, the annual exhibition of works from the ceramics, glass and jewellery and object discipline areas of Sydney College of the Arts (SCA), the University of Sydney, provides a forum for critical exchange that interfaces between practices and discourses on contemporary art and design.
The 2013 utility?, A Limited Edition, is an exhibition of ceramics, glass and jewellery by SCA students. Using journals and narration, the students were given a brief to explore a single event and create works that reflect the event in miniature by using tricks of the eye, manipulation and our relationship with the physical world.
The exhibition looks beyond what is immediately obvious or perceptible. It frames the impact we have on our surroundings in a dialogue between nature and culture. It reconsiders aspects of contemporary creative practice and challenges the perception that bigger is better. The miniature has the ability to draw us in for a closer look.

Souvenir, an exhibition of works by students studying in the ceramics, glass and jewellery and object discipline areas at Sydney College of the Arts (SCA), the University of Sydney, reflects different responses by a group of people to the one event. Using the formats of journal and narrative, individual experiences have been recorded. These experiences have then formed the basis for a reconsideration of the original event.
