College students see their work featured in University of the Arts London exhibition – FE News

Six students from Wiltshire College & University Center have had their work chosen for display in the University of the Arts London (UAL) Origins Creatives exhibition.

Origins Creatives is organized by UAL Awarding Body and offers art lovers, critics and industry professionals in the creative sector the chance to discover original creative talent from across the UK and celebrate creativity and hard work. strenuous students.

The exhibition is free and showcases the work of some of the UK’s most talented students at higher education institutions studying in UAL fields such as art and design, fashion business and retail, creative media, music performance and production, and the performing arts.

Students taking a range of creative arts courses at the College have all had their work chosen to feature in the three-day exhibition.

From the Chippenham campus, music student Jack Dorsett and film student Christopher Hyde are both included. Three Trowbridge-based learners are also present – Leo Mundin (game development), Jasmine Mack (film) and Summer XiaYuan (art and design). The fifth and final College representative attends the Salisbury campus and is Game Development student Leo Hayter.

Summer XiaYuan’s entry is a digital drawing titled Human in Chinese Culture and is one of many items she has created on this theme.

Summer said, “The theme of my end-of-year project is the human in Chinese culture. I based this digital drawing on a sketch I made of a dress I was planning on making. I was happy with the colors but didn’t like the background, which I found harder to create. I also created a Lotus print, although I found the sewing quite difficult. I also created a ceramic sculpture inspired by Chinese culture.

Christopher Hyde’s play is a short film called Evocative Memories. He explained, “The film is a recreation of a 1970s home movie. It features a family who bought a Super 8 camera and filmed their child’s birthday party.

“I’ve been studying at the College for two years and learning more about my hobby through filming and post-production. I honed my skills in the industry and find my forte is post-production. I love working with visual effects, coloring and using Premiere Pro.

This year, Origins Creatives will be an in-person exhibition at the Truman Brewery in Shoreditch. The exhibition will open with an opening by invitation only on Thursday July 21 at 6 p.m. It will be open to the public from 22n/a at 24e July, alongside an online showcase.

Tracey Bullen, Faculty Director – Creative Arts, Media and Performance at the College, said:

“It’s a fantastic achievement. That these students managed to have their work selected to be part of a national exhibition is a great thing to add to their CV. They have worked incredibly hard all year and deserve this special recognition for their efforts.

Ross Anderson, Director, UAL Awarding Body, said:

“The UAL Awarding Body Origins Creatives show is my favorite time of the year, and I’m so glad we can return to a physical space this summer.

“Origins offers our community of awards organizations the opportunity to come together and celebrate the wonderful work and incredible accomplishments of all of our students, and to recognize the outstanding efforts of the tutors and teachers who have supported them. The World needs creativity more than ever and our students are full of it!”
