The Show is Go – Bakers Dozen

The show is now OPEN. A few words of introduction by our team leader, Mark Dunford –

“Welcome to our exhibition.
This is the thirteenth year we have used this space to showcase the creativity of our Art & Design students at Truro College. Our exhibition presents a diverse range of ideas, materials, techniques and approaches. Creativity is part of our daily lives; it enriches and stimulates us.
Whether we are makers or consumers, we value and consider the innovative decisions made and shared by designers, artists and craftspeople.
Creativity is inherent but it requires courage to pursue and strength to recognise that imagination is everything.
The UK creative industries includes all arts, crafts, galleries and museums, advertising and marketing, film, TV and radio. Annually they contribute £92bn. to the UK economy.*
Baker’s Dozen is a testament to the ingenuity of the students and staff at Truro College, so please enjoy the work of the next generation of artists and designers as they provide air and dimension to their ideas, shaping our future with their creativity.
Mark Dunford”

Solargraphy: Ultra Long Exposure Photography

Some of our second year ED students on the fine arts pathway have been doing some experiments with long exposure photography called “Solargraphy”.

The technique uses a pinhole camera loaded with photo sensitive paper. This is then secured in a location facing the path of the sun, and left en situ for a number of weeks. In this case these two fine examples had an exposure time of 12 weeks.

The results when inverted in Photoshop (photos on RHS) look stunning and show the transit of the sun very clearly along with landscape details.

Great stuff.

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.
