Exhibition exposes innovative ideas
11th December 2013
Design students from Sheffield Hallam University are unveiling a new exhibition showcasing their innovative work with a huge range of industry experts.
Around 30 students from Sheffield Hallam's Interior Design degree programme have spent three months working with professionals from healthcare, digital media and new technology and sustainable enterprise. The students have created 16 three-dimensional installations, all of which find innovative solutions to a range of issues outlined by the professionals. The resulting exhibition is running at Bank Street Arts from Wednesday 11 December to Saturday 14 December. It includes LED illuminated silicone raindrops, a filmic journey through a micro and macro world and culinary vegetation cultivated in vodka bottles. Senior Lecturer Sally Billau said: "All of the installations in this exhibition are creative solutions to real-world issues, all of which have been put forward by professionals from a wide range of different disciplines. "Working alongside industry professionals like this, we've challenged our students to apply their design knowledge in a creative yet practical way, and using a range of design and fabrication techniques." The free exhibition, called 'Exposed' has been organised completely by students and is open to the public until Saturday 14 December. For more information visit bankstreetarts.com/exhibitions/exposed
