Degree Show One: Art

Looking both inwards and outwards, turning to the past and to the future, our Art students are challenging historical and ever-changing norms. Spanning fine art in all its forms, Show One ranged from painting to photography and installation to sculpture.


The 2018 Degree Shows revolve around an interactive design identity. Beginning as a pure white sphere, the shape pulses and changes colour as the shows draw near. Online activity including tweets and the number of Instagram posts per minute alter the boundaries of the form, manifesting the buzz of activity within the College as our students prepare for the shows. Once we open our doors, visitors, sound, movement and physical interaction will affect the form in real-time. Come and see what work has emerged this year and become part of our community as it shifts and evolves.
