MAGDC 2015 student Sean Murphy has been selected as one of four students to work on the Colour, Motif and Performance project led by UAL Chair of Art and Environment, Lucy Orta, UAL Chair of Art in the Environment and UAL’s staff member Zoe Norton from the Centre For Sustainable Fashion, who is a textile designer.

The project involves, creating colour variants and harmonies from over 100 floral and vegetation drawings. The contour drawings, provided by Lucy Orta are based on research conducted on plant species and the Herbelein archive of Zegna Foundation, which includes textile prints dating from the 1850?s to the 1980?s.

The project culminates in a live-performance at the Ermenegildo Zegna HQ in Milan where the students drawings will be projected onto the walls as part of the Milan Expo 2015.
