Hello Everyone,

Last week we saw the exhibition of Amy Gough's video experiment. Cameras were attached to the roof of the gallery and were projected on opposite sides of the corridor. The final product looked great, if you were unlucky enough to not see it, we will be uploading photos later on in the week. Amy is a 3rd year painting student and will be holding an exhibition in the Holdon Gallery later on this term.

This week we have Mark Robinson's exhibition which will be running until tomorrow morning (Friday). We were having lots of compliments even before it went up so if you haven't walked through please make sure you do it tonight or tomorrow morning, if only to see it coming down. The exhibition includes a selection of prints, paintings and drawings; mostly done in the first term of 1st year painting. An impressive collection of work influenced by primitiveness and Pop Art. Please visit for more information on Mark's work.

Going up this week is the Photography assessment work, and then the week after will be the Images and Things exhibition; a selection of images from 1st year essays from Friday lectures. We are still in the process of selecting images so if you'd like to still be apart of this then please send your images in a jpeg to This will be going on throughout reading week so if you're still around please come and have a look.

Information on the next two weeks.

(Click to enlarge image)

Created by Mark Robinson for his first solo exhibition in a few weeks time. Please feel free to come along and have a look! On display will be a selection of drawings and paintings curated by Ellie Greenwood; 3rd year Interactive Arts student, who will be exhibiting herself later on in the term.

On Tuesday morning, the current exhibition in the link will end an exhibition of Amy Gough's current work will be set up to run through to Monday the 8th.

'The concept is to challenge the audience’s perception of their own voyeurism by displacing them from the ‘norm’ when viewing art. The audience will become the subject and remain the audience in the piece. A live feed piece from recording cameras will project the audience onto a free wall. It requires the Link to be kept in its original state as a walkway.'

A disclaimer for next week's exhibition; Amy will be filming whoever passes through the link, and there will be projections on the walls of live footage. There will be signs outside the gallery warning passers by of the nature of the project and Amy claims that all filming is for research purposes only. If there are any problems please contact the gallery on or post a comment on the blog.
