PSP inspires art students

Not all students are workshy layabouts, you know - it's just the ones doing arts degrees. But even they sometimes find time in their busy schedules of trying to get on You Say We Pay to do a bit of work now and again, as six students at the Royal College of Art have proved.

They were inspired to create a load of "concept furniture" based around the PSP - or rather, based around the positions people adopt when playing on one, according to the website. Then there's some stuff about "cocoons", " re-appropriation" and "immateriality" that we don't really understand.

The furniture is specifically designed for use by people playing on the PSP, and you can try it out yourself when an exhibition of the students' work kicks off next month.

In the meantime you can see some pictures of the furniture on the website, along with biographies of the students (one of whom is Dr. Alan Outten, creator of the world's smallest website - - which also features the world's smallest versions of Pac-Man and Pong).

The exhibition will run from 2-10 December at the Entrance Gallery, Royal College of Art, Kensington Gore.
