Malaya Rhiann Edwards-Roberts uses her digital media creations to tell narratively driven stories. The visual stories encapsulate life and ideas inspired by the people and spaces in Malaya’s daily life. She uses her creativity to impel viewers to actively think about a topic or condition.
Her tea towel “Nana’s Kitchen” are part of a wider collection of home textiles designed by University of Arts London students, to celebrate the coming together of UAL’s Creative Shift and not just a shop.
The students were commissioned to design a range of homeware inspired by the theme ‘home’ and what emotions this elicits for them.
Working with interior designer Eva Sonaike, the students took part in a 6-week collaborative project to create products ready for market. The students were supported through a process that took them from product ideation to manufacture to visual merchandise.
