new creatives 2013, last visit to highbury college

This was my last visit to see the final year BTec students at Highbury College.  Eight students make up the core group producing work for the show at Aspex Gallery, which starts on 8 March 2013. Following on from the workshops, professional practice introductions and last weeks collaborative artists book exercise, I spent time with each individual student looking through their work which are they are each making in addition to the collaborative book piece.   Responses to the theme of 'does making things, make us human?' varied hugely and included ideas ranging from sculptural pieces based on artificial limbs, conceptual wallpaper, deaf inspired casting to video art.  I was really impressed by the depth of research, commitment and level of skills demonstrated by all of the students who have committed extra time and effort to this project.
