We love it when our local youth get the opportunity to showcase their talents, and this time we celebrate with Chloe Skinner and Ruby Taylor who have both had their VCE work selected for exhibition at Top Designs 2021 in Melbourne.
Top Designs is an annual exhibition that showcases work created by VCE students who completed VCE Media, Product Design and Technology, Systems Engineering, Theatre Studies and Visual Communication Design subjects, as well as VCE VET Creative Digital Media and Integrated Technologies. The 2021 exhibition displays works from 2020 Unit 3 and 4 VCE students.
Ruby and Chloe both produced their very different creative pieces while completing their VCE at Kardinia International College, here in Geelong.
Ruby’s VCE Media film, ‘The Girl Who Cried Sick” has already won ‘Best Film Award’ at the 2020 Odyssey Film Festival, which showcases the best VCE Media films from across the Geelong region, and will now also have the honour of being the ninth Media student in nine years from Kardinia International College to be recognised at Top Designs.
Chloe Skinner not only designed her unique Geometric Chair, but also built it from scratch in VCE Product Design and Technology. The Geometric Chair is one of six products selected from 290 shortlisted pieces in this area. Chloe’s work has also been selected to be in contention for the People’s Choice Award, which is the only award that is presented at Top Designs.
Kardinia International College Principal, Catherine Lockhart said she is proud of the recognition that Chloe and Ruby have received.
“This is fantastic recognition for Chloe and Ruby, who both worked extremely hard on their projects during 2020. To be recognised amongst the top VCE works is a wonderful achievement and I am very proud of both Chloe and Ruby. I would also like to commend the families and staff for their commitment and support.”
Top Designs 2021 is exhibiting until Sunday 11 July at Melbourne Museum and there are 95 works on display. https://museumsvictoria.com.au/melbournemuseum/whats-on/top-designs-2021/
