New sculptures appear at Waterside!

| 0 comments

This afternoon the FDLT Y2 students explored the sculptures placed around the Waterside site.

They then chose their own space on campus and made a maquette (the small model that a sculptor would make as part of the design process). They then used green screen technology (DoInk app and Ipads) to virtually place their sculpture in the space, manipulating its scale to fit.

Some of the sculptures are inspired the university experience (learning and graduating).

Some are inspired by the materials themselves.

Others are inspired by the site itself (railway heritage and wildlife).

Digital technology (apps and ipads) allowed us to work on a small scale and then transform the scale of what we made as well as place where it cannot go in real life, manipulating the environment.
