Inspired by the Nobel Prize 2015
In Nobel Creations – the Nobel Prize 2015 fashion students at Beckmans College of Design and composition students from the Royal College of Music have made interpretations of the 2015 year's Nobel prizes. Their creations are 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.
– How peaceful are you? asks KMH student Hanna Bylund in her musical interpretation of the Peace Prize. "Nobel Creations – The Nobel Prize 2015" is on display at the Nobel Museum from 4 December 2015 until March 6, 2016. Photo: Hannes Egnell
Listen to a piece of the composition May we dare to dream, by Hanna Bylund:
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. ”
