The KASK School of Arts Ghent 2021 graduates are presenting their final projects in an online art festival from 1 June to 4 July. The festival will feature the work of students from across the school's disciplines. In this post we will take a look at some of our favourite projects that explore storytelling, online data, love and community.

Paulien De Hornois has created a series of woodcut prints that are inspired by the poetry of Delphine Lecompte. De Hornois takes the absurd poems and illustrates them based on their own interpretation of the prose.

Until_the_day_we_meet by Melinda Bodo is a series of illustrated poems. The poems stem from articles sent from Lebanon to Belgium and mark the passing of time during lockdown as two people meet online and wait for the day they can see each other in the flesh.

Elephant Skin by Helena Simkens is a picture book that tells the tale of a man and his bird. Simkens explains: 'The story is about isolation, rigidity, loneliness and the relationship between a man and his companion, a bird. Jacques' feelings are expressed literally. What he feels is real.'

Floor Vanden Berghe's (MA visual arts, visual arts) Profiling Pollution is a browser extension that automatically scrolls and likes Facebook content randomly in a bid to confuse and mislead the social network's algorithm. Burghe's Antipedia, meanwhile, scans Wikipedia to find content that was added then immediately removed in the page's next revision.

Young people from Rotselaar contributed towards the creation of Tunnel Language by Manon Lambeens. Youths from the community could post their own messages on the tunnel which lights up at night, becoming a focal point in the area.

Rosanne Coetsier's (postgraduate digital storytelling) Letters to Wastemen is a podcast that explores the themes of toxic masculinity and the patriarchy. Coetsier's What's Luv Youtube series, meanwhile, looks at the cultural aspects of love language.
