Our year 3 students Mat and Alison are currently with Dr. Tom Flint at Farmingdale College in New York State. They’re working with students there to create an exhibition that blends art and technology with interesting spaces. Mat and Alison received funding from our mobility fund to enable them to travel and build on what they are learning at Edinburgh Napier. Here they are demonstrating some Augmented Reality technology to the group. You can follow their progress on their blog https://blendedspaces.tumblr.com/ and on Tom’s Twitter account – @tomflint
We’re very proud of third year Digital Media student Wilf Magnussen who is currently on placement with the Edinburgh Napier University marketing team. Here’s the video he shot last week to capture the excitement of graduation.
Wilf says “I hadn’t shot an event before so it was an intense learning experience, I worked with Cecilia from marketing and we planned carefully before shooting and got the video ready to share in two days” “It was hard work, but good fun”.
Look out for more content from the DMID interns working with the marketing team soon.
Just a few snaps from the graduation yesterday. Congratulations to all our new graduates, you have been amazing to work with and we’re so proud of you. Go and do great things and then come back and tell us about them!
A warm welcome to our direct entrants from college who are pictured here taking part in the Prototyping for Virtual Reality workshop with DMID lecturer John Morrison. They’ve had the chance to spend two days with us, finding out what life at University is really like as part of the “Let’s Start” events . It was great to meet them all and after some interesting conversations we’re looking forward to September so we can get started on some exciting projects.
