Lightpainting

Second year Extended Diploma students tried their hand at Lightpainting this week. The technique involves using a digital stills camera set at a slow shutter speed to capture the trails light makes when moved in front of the lens. By controlling the aperture and shutter speed you can get some awesome effects simply using a few torches and fairy lights.

Stop Motion Set Design

Our design students on the UAL L3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design have been working together to create sets for stop motion animation.

Given a basic setting, scenario and era, they have worked in pairs and threes to build these miniature sets using readily available materials. The sets are no larger than 50cm in any direction and some employ forced perspective techniques to create the illusion of larger spaces.

See photos below of the finish, and stunning, work.

armour for humans

Currently in his second year of the UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma in Art & Design, Rico Jordi-Slater has a fascination for armour. Having recently created a metal hand piece (pictured) from reclaimed sheet materials including an old cymbal, Rico is now exploring equivalents in the natural world. Working with a batch production process, Rico has cast multiple plaster horse shoe crabs, hand tinting each one with a mixture of inks and paints. Intrigued by their blue blood, which is harvested from many horse shoe crabs because of its medical applications, Rico has even gone to the length of tinting the plaster to reflect this. He is now exploring how their forms might be appropriated to create a visually exciting wearable armour for humans.

Environmental Portraits


This week students in NCFE Photography have been creating their own environmental portraits.
Inspired by the likes of Sannah Kvist and Camilla Catrambone they used objects on their person to create a visual idea of their personality. The objects not only give us a clue to the life of the photographer (bus tickets, phones etc) but so does the composition. Are they messy? Are they ordered.
The results were simply shot in the studio and look striking.

“I undertook the National Diploma in Art & Design course at Truro College after being excited by the work I saw at the yearly exhibition. I was given creative freedom in experiencing many different art forms whilst being offered wonderful guidance. If you are passionate about art thats the course for you and the lecturers give you a lot of confidence.
