Not So Far From Around Us is a one day exhibition of the works produced by students from the Master Institute of Visual Cultures (of Avans Hogeschool / St. Joost School of Fine Art and Design). The collection of films and audio-narratives create an immersive space for observations on the ubiquity of actions and objects in our lives, shedding light on the points of view and creative restrictions of the creators.

All showcased work was made during the modules Scripted Design and Parallel Worlds led by Ollie Palmer during the 2020-2021 academic year. Scripted Design is a module in which students filmed on a daily basis subject matters chosen through creative constraints ( i.e. filming a round shape everyday, filming filling a cup everyday, etc.). The final videos compile the body of work into essential forms Parallel Worlds is a module through which students develop a toolset for world building starting from objects, characters, actions or events. This results in audio pieces in which every story departs from a real life setting, to then be taken off into a parallel world.

Every work brings upfront a playfulness and intimacy otherwise not observed about everyday life.
