In the third year elective each student has to define and write their own brief:

Alex Michie – The topic of “dementia” is particular to me because my Grandma suffered from the illness for many years before she passed away in 2006. I was much younger at the time but can recall many aspects of her life which became difficult. She never lived to see smartphones reach the tipping point and tablets thereafter. I believe technology has the power to considerably enhance somebody’s life, given the right design and strategy, and with it’s aid continue to live independently at home for longer.

In the third year elective each student has to define and write their own brief:

Julius Klimas – Virtual and augmented words are ‘occupying’ our general everyday reality. How will it look and how will it affect our daily lives? Will some people become ‘couch-potatoes’ even more? And most importantly will we lose aspects of physical life and the needs of regular life if everything will be possible in the virtual world? By creating 3D objects in Maya, I’m planning to implement them into the live video footage to suggest that virtual reality can become seriously addictive.

This project is students’ first foray into the world of Unity to create a novel aesthetic experience through the creation of a simple 3d navigable abstract environment. Students are encouraged to create a compelling  multidimensional environment with no pretence towards photorealism and not restrict their environment to the current ‘visual norm’.

This project introduces procedural thinking and creative coding practice. Students are asked to develop a series of 3 engaging procedural visual artworks using Processing considering the following questions: What are the aesthetics of computation? How do we generate images using procedural methods within the computer? Processing allows creative people to engage with code and develop new ways of imaging. Using this software students can explore this uncharted world.
