Response 6 is a printed and digital book published in Spring 2023 exploring the idea of the caves of your mind and body. Be guided on a journey through the labyrinth that lies beneath your feet. Explore the horrors and psyche of our hollow Earth through a collection of images and fictional texts inspired by all that caves are and represent.
Prepare to shine a light into the darkness and uncover the unexpected: caverns and chambers, tunnels and tricks, danger and doom. On this fictional journey, experience being lost in the dark and see the potential of underground worlds.
Response is an annual group placement for students at Nottingham Trent University in the schools of Art and Design, Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities and Confetti.
The 2022-2023 Response 6 editorial team consisted of students from across years, degrees and courses. During winter 2022 they explored our exhibition Hollow Earth: Art, Caves and the Subterranean Imaginary. The team experienced the process of creating a publication, including producing texts, imagery, designs and a launch event.
