The Unknown Student

Detailed drawings of students’ rooms are displayed in animated neon on two exterior facades of Newarke Point. They can be seen across Leicester. This process transfers the personal domain to the public domain. Unknown Student celebrates particular students’ life by accurately documenting all their possessions. These objects date in time allowing the observer to guess the time that the artwork was installed. Unknown Student is concerned with the most pressing issues which students deal with when they first leave home, which tend to focus on domestic survival rather than academic success. The artwork is a monument to individual students, picked at random, whether they become a great ‘success’ or simply carry on unknown within the mass of society.
