Student Showcase - Toby Sexty
'In a Parallel Universe' is the title of third year Visual Communication student, Toby Sexty's project on the theme of information overload. This project is inspired by Alvin Tofler's 1970 book, Future Shock, and looks at the human side of tomorrow, presenting a disturbing analysis of emerging society and how to come to terms with the future.
Toby's project enters a parallel universe and re-writes the invention of texting to predate the telephone call. Toby's design shows an early, imaginary texting machine, accompanying advertisements and design blueprints. His final work will be exhibited as part of Information Overload, a Visual Communication exhibition in March and also part of Artsfest.
