ARTWORK produced by Students from the University of Worcester is to be on show at the University’s Art House this Thursday as part of the city’s Light Night art festival.

The multi-projection-based installation, titled ‘Creative Media Connections’, involves headshots lit in different ways, which are designed to provoke emotion or feeling in the viewer.

David Edmunds, Festival Director of River Severn Arts, was full of admiration for the students’ work.

““The Festivals are all about showing world-class art and performances alongside emerging talent” he said.

“It is fantastic to see how the students have responded to our brief and focused on ‘connections’, the theme of Light Night Worcester.”

As well as Edmunds, the Head of the School of Arts at the University of Worcester believes this will provide invaluable experience to the students.

“This has been a great experience for our first-year students.” He said.

“The installation that the students have created is really interesting and I hope people will venture over to the Art House during Light Night Worcester to experience their work.”

The installation can be viewed at the Art House between 5.30 and 10PM on Thursday evening as part of Worcester’s Light Night art festival. Light Night is the first of four art festivals involved in the programme ’The Arches – Worcester project’.

The project was awarded £3m in funding back in January 2019 by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. And money will be used to create a new gateway for Worcester, following the line of Victorian arches from Foregate Street railway station to The Hive and River Severn.
