JACLYNE CHRISTENSEN I work with the idea of a viewer in mind, one who stumbles across my work and engages with the piece, they have a reaction to it. The subject matter changes, the materials vary but the intended outcome, (in my head at least ) is that the viewer interacts and they inform or become a part of the piece .They take away from it what they want and they leave it behind. (I don’t know if this ‘person’ exists)

BEVERLY COTTRELL Food for the heart, the mind and the soul… Paper Lab emanates a playful twist which challenges the worlds of fact and fiction. The creations are finished with a light-hearted touch, where the majority of the materials used are mundane however combined with hand drawn illustrations and objects that are out of the ordinary, such as equipment existing from a science laboratory. Presenting ‘experiments’ as visual translations of objects and images as a method of recapping and educating fundamental science knowledge to the individual, which presents itself as the nostalgia of learning...

SUZANNE ELANIS Driven by intrigue in comparing the eastern and western cultures. Particularly in exploring my joint heritage between Jordan and the UK. The main focus is analysis of the drawings drawn by the children from both cultures showing their fears, dreams and desires. Transforming their drawings to life through sculpture and photography.

Bryony Pritchard

Since graduating from B.A (Hons) Art and Design (Interdisciplinary) in 2007, there isn’t a day that goes by when I am not thankful for those 3 years of exploration, play and development. I always had an interest in many art forms, approaches and disciplines. During the course I was allowed to find my own way through the path of an interdisciplinary practice. I was well supported by the staff and facilities, plus I was given ‘space’ to think and reflect through interesting modules. Like any good degree, there were times when I felt a bit rudderless, but I believe it was those challenging moments that have really equipped me for life after the degree because that’s when you learn those vital skills, which see you through. Now, when somebody asks me ‘What do you do?’,

I still find it hard to shrink my practice into one sentence. Sometimes I don’t know where bits of my practice start or end, it all blends onto each other really. But I think there is strength in this because there are more possibilities, which is really exciting to me. My projects have quite a range to them, I love collaborating with different people; this has led to some exciting work opportunities and residencies abroad; most recently in Sweden. In my independent work I enjoy mixing it up – so coordinating creative projects for festivals and charities, designing and illustrating CD artwork, delivering installation performances, or leading family workshops in galleries to name a few. Maybe it’s that desire for constant researching/learning/committing/being flexible/ balancing/reflecting which the course equipped me for.

ALEXANDRA ODDIE Repetitive processes and the regular reproduction of sculptural forms are the dominant factors of Alexandra’s practice. Site-specific exhibition is common in finalizing her project briefs. The works scale and presence is important in making a visual impression. By utilizing a wide variety of media and material throughout her practice it is based upon the principles of experimentation and manipulation. The body of work present, requires engagement and interaction from the public leading to and involving collaborative elements.

ELLIE WELSH The incessant deterioration of one substance induced the desire to learn more, documenting the fermenting specimens using various methods of recording produces scope for a continually altering visual. Mould as a material, once born, becomes difficult to control; the spores constantly multiply, to maintain this state becomes a task of persistent citation. Growing the substance within a site allows for the combination and the interlocking of the mould within the environment. The work becomes site specific and becomes a direct response of the conditions of the space, the location acts as an intervention and manipulates the outcome and the progression of fungi.

CRAIG WILSON Identity plays a large role within his work and there is particular interest in the way the media exploits it. Fashion and clothing are his chosen medium, research into fashion has led him to the use of clothing as a means of moulding ones identity. His work invites the audience to attain a new perspective on clothing and in particular the affect fashion and non-fashion has on their identity.

BETH WOOLERTON Exploring communication through sound and senses. Expressing sound through visual representation. Creating a language that constantly changes, contradicting the intended purpose of a language – to coherently communicate a message - but still communicating an interpretation of a sound nevertheless. Questioning the impact of impaired senses on our perceptions and addressing how the loss of a sense can enrich our viewing experience.
