This week I was lucky enough to head into the winding back blocks of Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design to snap some of the preparation being made by students taking part in this years Hewlett Packard sponsored student exhibition at Urbis Designday. A total of 14 students and alumni are currently installing their work in the large space at Silo Park under the collective theme of ” Journey of Connections”.
The first 4 images below were on Tuesday of 4th year student Daphne Simons and the work she was doing on her huge installation of a bridge! Being able to drag my feet around student work spaces reminds me of how much I relished that unbridled creativity and it definitely got me excited for what I was going to see.
Below is a sneak peak inside the space and of Daphne and the others hard at work. What an INCREDIBLE venue. I highly recommend you nab yourself a ticket and take this Saturday the 21st to view the work of our local established and emerging creatives.
