2012 Middlesex University Degree Show
RAW/Platonic Solids was the theme of Middlesex University’s Art and Design Degree Show 2012. Platonic solids are pure forms of aesthetic beauty, named after the Ancient Greek philosophy Plato who documented the five basic (RAW) elements of the world as fire, earth, air, water and the universe. Students of Middlesex University are full of Raw talent, creativity and energy.

Platonic Solids
Five nets were placed throughout the Catalogue. The nets are of the platonic solids that Plato uses to represent the 5 raw elements; Fire (tetrahedron), Earth (cube/hexahedron), Air (octahedron), Water (icosahedron) and the Universe (dodecahedron).

The idea is for people to be able to cut out the nets and create their own platonic solid. Each net has a collection of students work on the reverse side.
