Extended Diploma Art & Design student Yasmin, aged 19, submitted her video in response to a call out from the UK gallery requesting young people aged 15 – 25 to respond to the theme of ‘future’. She said: “It’s great news - having my work included in the project at Tate Modern is a dream come true. I have also been successful in gaining a place at Goldsmiths in London to study Fine Art in September and when I begin my studies I’ll be able to visit the Tate regularly!”
Yasmin, who came to York College from Easingwold School, added: “This video explores the expectation of ‘nothing’. It’s about the relationship between the viewer and the art itself, showing how ‘nothing’ can be ‘something’ that is interacted.”
