Mel Brimfield works collaboratively with a multitude of actors, dancers, musicians and theatre practitioners to develop work that variously occupies both visual art and theatre contexts, in the form of photographs, films and large-scale live performances. As well as developing her recent music hall themed artSOUTH project An Audience with Willy Little with Dickie Beau commissioned by the John Hansard Gallery, she has in recent years made exhibitions and performances for institutions including the Henry Moore Institute, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, London Word Festival and the Government Art Collection.

We already have dates set of three of the Artists to come to the University as part of our Guest Speaker Programme and will be visiting as many of the projects as possible.
Laser Forest is the lastest creation from a creative studio known as Marshmallow Laser Feast comprised of Memo Akten, Robin McNicholas, and Barney Steel who have focused almost exclusively on creating interactive experiences over the past two years. This latest installation involves a forest of 150 interactive rods installed in an empty factory space that when touched trigger both light and audio cues, effectively creating a large interactive instrument. Laser Forest was commission for the STRP Biennale in Eindhoven last month, and you can learn much more about at the Creators Project.
Pete Hardy was our guest speaker last week. He is a British sculptor, (not the Australian sculptor by the almost same name). Despite being a successful artist he is quite elusive on modern media, with virtually nothing about him on the Internet.
In His talk he discussed creative practice and its trajectory. How artists’ work and concerns change from their college work onwards and how they maintain their practice over time.. A lively discussion ensued covering among other things why and who you make work for!
Pete Hardy has been a practicing sculptor since leaving art school. His practice attempts to investigate the use of objects and apparatus as mediators to humans sense experience, what Richard Dawkins terms ‘the extended phenotype’. His work employs the language of industrial processes and the prefabricated along with the paradox of a commitment to the handmade.
