Beckmans College of Design and the Royal College of Music interprets the Nobel Prize 2013

In Fashion Innovation 3 fashion students at Beckmans College of Design and composition students from the Royal College of Music are making their interpretations of this year’s Nobel prizes. Their creations will be adaptations of the prizes in physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, peace and economic sciences, and of the discoveries and the people who have been awarded the prize this year. In both fashion and music we can see the Nobel Prizes reflected. Students from the Visual Communications programme at Beckmans have followed the process and documented it in film and print media. 

The project explores what unites Nobel laureates, fashion designers and composers – namely creativity. Courage to think on entirely new lines, daring to question established theories, innovative combinations of insights from different fields – these are some of the characteristics of creativity.

Göran Sundberg, Senior Lecturer at Beckmans College of Design:

"For Beckmans College of Design this is a unique opportunity to be able to reflect on the process of innovation in a larger perspective and on a higher level. It is fantastic to be able to work with ideas – something that combines all the disciplines that meet in the exhibition. " 

Ola Bengtsson, Department Head of Department of Jazz, Royal College of Music: 

"To create music to something as big and exciting as a Nobel Prize has been a real challenge for the jazz students at KMH. What music can you improvise or compose for Nobel Prizes in chemistry, or the Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel? I can hardly wait until the doors open at the Nobel Museum. "
