You’re invited to our much-anticipated annual exhibition celebrating the stunning work of our Masters students. Explore the visually stunning and innovative projects which explore creative technologies. 

On Thursday 26 September from 1pm to 4pm come to our commercial venue Metronome where our talented postgraduate students will be demonstrating their major projects they’ve been working on throughout the year. Here’s a sneak peak of what’s to come…

MSc Creative Technologies student Jake Eden has looked at 3D scanning insects with photogrammetry. He was able to photograph specimens at National History Museum in London with the aim being to generate highly detailed, accurate 3D insects to be used within a VFX shot or asset for a game.

Jake also received a business grant from The Hive:

“I was also one of the lucky few to receive a business grant from The Hive which is helping me with access to faster rendering for my freelance VFX work. I am about to start a PGCE with a placement to teach VFX.”

MA Creative Technologies student Caitlin Harper has been researching the effects that augmented reality can have on museum patrons at the Nottingham Industrial Museum. Caitlin has developed an application that allows its user to build a 19th century steam engine using physical cards; it has been successful in teaching the basic principles of steam technology to pupils aged 7 and 8. She’s now taking it one step further…

“I’m now developing an augmented reality tour for the museum with a former cohort that will hopefully bring myself and the museum a passive income.”
