We’ve seen some odd student projects in our time here at CR, but this must go down as one of the oddest: two Kingston students created human photograms by swallowing 35mm film, then, erm, expelling it, and recording the results Luke Evans (above) and and Josh Lake (below) are in the final first year of the BA […]
Matt Richardson created a camera which doesn’t deliver a photo but a description of the photo it made. Eh what?

Drawing Tops A spinning-top, that uses a pen as the spindle, represents many of the core ideas behind my current work. It is recognisable, un-intimidating, and invites people to interact with objects that can lead to unpredictable results, or an emergent property.
