In conjunction with Room 103, students from the Art Enterprise degree course at the Leeds City College University Centre, were set the task to produce a visual response to the themes of dystopia, surveillance, identity and dictatorship that lie at the heart of much of Orwell’s writing.

Vincent Courtney

Being the seventieth anniversary of the completion of 1984, where the world of Oceania, Big Brother, Newspeak and the Thought Police seem to have become a virtual reality, the themes that these emerging artists and designers responded to, were informed as much by the world around them as by the original text of Orwell.
