The next generation of artists, film-makers, designers and architects will show their colourful, challenging and innovative work as part this year’s Edinburgh College of Art Degree Show.
The strange death of a Japanese revolutionary, a device that helps deaf people engage with music, and a high society kidnapping from 18th century Edinburgh are among the inspirations for works at this year’s show.
For nine days the College (ECA) will be transformed into the capital’s biggest public gallery space as it celebrates the work of more than 430 graduating students.
Previous shows at the College have launched the careers of BAFTA and Turner Prize winners.
From Animation to Textiles, 38 degree programmes will be exhibiting in the Lauriston Place campus and Evolution House, celebrating the diversity of the College’s subject areas.
This year’s show will feature a film made by a student who hid in camouflage for several weeks to film rare birds on the Water of Leith, and a project that involves a student posting their excess possessions to strangers’ doors.
For only the second time in its history, the impressive work and intricate models of the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture will be in the ECA Sculpture Court.
Students will be exploring the agency of water in Mumbai, the infrastructures of renewable energy in Orkney, and relations of mood, mobility and place in Hackney Wick.
As part of the celebrations, graduating students from the Reid School of Music will perform free recitals.
Taking place 19 to 21 May in the Reid Concert Hall and the Jazz Bar on Chambers Street, there are 13 recitals to choose from, each of 45 minutes duration.
