Recently, Paston Sixth Form year 13 students studying BTEC Creative and Media Production exhibited their latest creative work in the form of an Interactive Video Installation exhibition at the Old Shoe Factory St Mary’s Works in Norwich. The work produced for the exhibition, entitled ‘Revive’, showcased some outstanding and innovative visual art, including a reconstruction of a WW2 bunker; a cage where the audience were encouraged to crawl inside to experience an audio/visual haunting and claustrophobic atmosphere; a virtual reality car simulator; a 1980s musical revival and much more. The work demonstrated an incredible diversity of ideas, along with a real sophistication and intellectual exploration of themes, which challenged the audience and entertained them in equal measure. The exhibition was the end product of weeks of hard work, commitment and energy from the group. The students did themselves and the college proud. The location aesthetically enhanced the experience even further to make this an exciting night for Paston Sixth Form College and the visual arts. The event was well attended by friends, family members and the general public.
Tom Westwood, BTEC Creative Media Teacher, said:
“I am immensely proud of the work produced here. To generate work of this quality and to curate an exhibition for the public is a superb achievement and I cannot praise the commitment and efforts of my students highly enough. Their innovation, attention to detail, intelligence and overall creativity was a pleasure to oversee”
A special thanks to St Mary’s Works for hosting the Exhibition at this wonderful location.
