Along with some of the most exciting talents in contemporary design, the exhibition encouraged those to reflect on fresh and thought-provoking ways of reconnecting with our past through printed photographs.

Artists were also asked  to utilise alternate design outlets to include diaries and other permanent methods of capturing thoughts and experiences.
