Last week, as part of Experimental Practices, an elective term 4 course taught by Dougal Muir, there was a fun session of light painting photography. I helped to guide the shooting after sharing some tips on the technical requirements, camera settings, and providing some sources of inspiration. We made use of a camera remote, a tripod, slow shutter speeds, gels, and various LED lights. Check out the following light painting results by Digital Design Class 35!
Congratulations to the winning teams from last week’s Digital Design SLAM. These intense and fun collaborative design challenges take place three times per year. They provide great opportunities for students to test their design skills and to build their networks as teams are formed from all three intakes. Slams also allow students to potentially gain another portfolio piece in a short time frame. Deliverables include both motion and interactive design elements. The students explored the use of projection mapping as the main component for this event. Here are the winning teams that captured the prizes for the Critics’ Choice and the People’s Choice categories, respectively.

In the early weeks of each new term, the students in Digital Design are encouraged to submit images from work that they did in the previous term. They are welcome to submit anything from character or logo designs, interface mockups, to even screen captures from their motion design work. The work is then posted online so that all of the Digital Design students can vote on the work, resulting in a “Of The Students, By The Students” selection of winners, who then see their work framed and mounted On The Wall around the campus.
