Ascension – final degree show prep

Our third year students managed to take over unused spaces in Preston Market for their final Degree show ‘Ascension’, with some extensive prep work and effort they transformed these spaces from abandoned to gallery in a few long days. A great effort from everyone involved, well done Class of 2017!

Claire Angel & Karl Child – The Steve Project

The Steve Project is a collaboration between two UCLan alumni – Claire Angel and Karl Child – who study the importance of family photography and the traditional display methods within the family home. The work is an in-depth study of the psychological reasoning behind the notion to curate and exhibit family photography. Over three years their research and data collection will result in a series of community based workshops, exhibitions and a photobook alongside an academic research paper aiming to inform and educate students and artists on the significance and relevance of traditional family photography in a digital age.

The Steve Project

Through a series of professionally organised house sitting assignments they plan to travel around England documenting the inevitable exhibitions curated by the family members and home owners. By doing this they will gain knowledge and understanding which will allow them to identify and analyse certain concepts such as patterns and trends, dynamics and power alignments within relationships, subconscious decisions made by all participants and the interactions between the physical prints and each family member including the curator and observer.

Year 3 Portfolio Projects

At the mid point of their final year of study, Under Graduate students are required to submit a portfolio of work that is the foundation of their future career.  The intention is then to build on this in Semester 2 and then graduate as a new practitioner with work at a standard suitable for a professional context.  Here is a selection of some of the recent submissions from current 3rd year students.

Graduate Profile – Wayne Daniel Exhibition

Psuedo by Wayne Daniel

Exhibition runs from 6 September to 30 September 2013 at FYCreatives in Blackpool

Psuedo is the first Solo Show of photographic works by UCLan graduate Wayne Daniel

“The archive of Dr. Walter Verbogden c1958 – 1964 concerns the validity and truth of the Chimera, which employs the splicing together of DNA of two or more animal species to create a new heightened species.  This idea, although mythical at its route, is very possible with modern technology and advances in the field of genetics.

It is only in today’s society that morals and ethics fully police the world and work of science, especially in relation to genetics.  As shown in the images, found by the photographer and carefully reprinted using traditional darkroom methods, the use of technology to indulge in pseudo-scientific ideas of creating new species has been employed in past decades.

The work presented is curated from parts of a discovered archive dated between 1958 and 1964, shown along with what appears to be German transcripts of the scientific processes employed and the byproducts of the creation of these ‘animals’.  All artifacts were discovered at a car boot sale by the photographer and the seller had little knowledge about the many slides of film he possessed after buying the entire contents of a storage facility at auction which contained vintage medical equipment.”
