The School of Design is pleased to present /unreel, an exhibition produced by our MA Digital Arts students 2021. /unreel is dedicated to creating other-worldly places and presenting abstract artforms, whilst questioning their artificiality and subjective perspectives. The artists take over the space through the hybridisation of the physical and the virtual. Each work holds a distinct outlook on its relations to the spaces inhabited by the supremacy of digitisation, contributing to the entity of the exhibition. A wide range of media will be shown including video, sound, animation, sculpture, print, installation, projection, and digital drawing – all highlighting the diversity and individuality of approaches to the field of Digital Arts.  The show is located within two of the University of Greenwich’s art spaces – The Project Space and The Stephen Lawrence Gallery. Both spaces will focus on the display of works created as part of the Major Project, an 8-month independent study module led by research and practice, allowing for a full development of individual interest within the field of Digital Arts.

 “Special thanks to Jim Hobbs, Sarah Macdonald, Dr. Andrew Knight-Hill, Dr. Richard Whitby and all the visiting lecturers and practicing artists we have had the pleasure of speaking to. Your work and your words have influenced each one of us in great ways and that has shaped exciting paths for us. We would not be where we are today without your support. ” –  MA Digital Arts 2021 Crew

School of Design Show 2021

Wednesday, July 14th, 2021

Visit our showcase exhibition and see a range of work on display from our students graduating in Architecture, Landscape Architecture & Urbanism, Graphic Design & Animation, Media, Film and Television.

The students this year have produced work full of fearless experimentation in the face of incredible challenges. They display wit, ingenuity and imagination in what they have achieved. Out of the chaos and uncertainty these creative individuals have found possibility and the freedom to experiment. The challenge of chaos was compounded by not being able to physically inhabit the creative space for much of the year – but that has not stopped them allow their talent and potential emerge.

We can see this year, more than ever, that the School of Design continues to go from strength to strength. This show attests to its growing reputation and standing as a creative institution of national and international standing. We urge you to come and share with us the exciting results of our students’ success. Celebrate these achievements with us.

In The Works

Monday, September 21st, 2020

MA Digital Arts Interim Exhibition: Sanja Dudek, Eduard Fadgyas, Yi Ting Liong, Ashley Maclaughlin, Boris Nascimento, Mateo Monje Shefford, Megan Swaffer, Daniela Zaharieva

The School of Design is pleased to announce In The Works, an interim exhibition produced by our current MA Digital Arts students.  The title, In The Works, stems from the state of an artwork or idea that hovers between inception and completion, recognizing the importance of process and potential in a creative act.  As such, this show comes as a milestone marking the midway point of their postgraduate studies and is a means of examining recent works and testing out new ideas for future projects through more experimental means. A wide range of media will be shown including video, sound, animation, sculpture, print, installation, photography and digital drawing – all highlighting the diversity and individuality of approaches to the field of Digital Arts.  The show is located within two of the University of Greenwich’s art spaces – The Project Space and The Heritage Gallery.  Site 1: The Project Space will focus on the display of works created as part of Aesthetics & Practice, an 8-month module which allows students to develop their own body of work in response to a curated series of thematic seminars and workshops with visiting artists and academics*. Site 2: The Heritage Gallery is a more experimental space where students will be testing out their most recent ideas in the build-up to their final exhibition in September 2021.  

* Visiting artists and academics this year: Juliana Cerquiera Leite (USA), Chris Cornish (UK), Professor Jo-Anne Bichard (UK), Nadine Shcutz (FR), Fraser Muggeridge (UK), Dr. Akis Panousopolous (GR), and Peter Burr (USA)

 “I am incredibly proud of the work these students have done this year.  Their take on what Digital Arts means to them is very personalised, but also intellectually aware of the context in which they are making. The trajectory has been amazing and watching these guys grow as digital artists has been a humbling experience. I am also incredibly thankful to the entire staff within the School of Design who have helped teach/tutor/tech on this programme.  It seems we have managed to define the core and spirit of a Digital Arts programme which celebrates the strength of interdisciplinary approaches.”
