Royal College of Art Degree Show
Neurodiversity Celebration Week at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London celebrates the strengths and talents, and raises awareness of lived experiences of neurodivergent individuals within art and design education, recognising their unique differences in ways of thinking, learning, interacting, and perceiving the world, how people move and communicate in different ways.
‘Voices of History’ are a series of quotes from influential historical figures within the movement that shaped our world, designed for Neurodiversity Celebration Week at the Hockney Gallery. Working collaboratively with Joy Lu (MA) Design Products, each quote is designed with a distinct direction, carefully curated to reflect the message within. These posters also served as wayfinding markers across the campuses.
The Maxwell Montes, a tribute to Temple Grandin, embodies the concept of being an anthropologist from Mars. Its purpose is to create visual space for disabilities that are unseen, as well as exploring the boundaries of privacy and the disclosure system for obtaining access and support in the context of disability and neurodiversity.

RCA2023 Degree Show: Research
MA Research Study: Irregular Systems is a study of the diverse forms of human communication, on language systems from both natural phenomena and neurodivergent human civilisations. By studying the diversity and complexity of human communication the research seeks to explore innovative forms of communication whilst simultaneously challenging the existing limitations and boundaries that neurodivergent individuals encounter in their communicative experiences, to broaden our understanding of what constitutes human language and communication.
