Featured Project: Sentient Exhibition and Book

A range of projects from the Creative Computing module

Sentient is a printed book and online exhibition created by our year 3 and 4 students for their Creative Technology module led by Dr. Tom Flint.  We normally have a gallery exhibition, but this year the students have managed to find alternative ways to exhibit their work.  They say “We have had the opportunity to work on a number of incredible projects that we’re pleased to share. Not only do we enjoy showcasing our work, but also sharing details about the creative process behind each project. We want you to fully experience our projects, so please sit down, relax and enjoy.”

Many thanks to the students and to Dr. Tom Flint for allowing us to share their work.

A few playful projects

Year 2 are getting stuck in to the Playful Interaction module run by Dr. Tom Flint – despite the difficulties of lock down.  Members of the class have had Arduino starter packs sent to the their homes so they can work on their projects.   These videos are just a few of the challenges they have been working on.   We’re looking forward to seeing what they do by the end of the trimester!

Thank you to James Eddowes, Lucy Sherratt, Dillon Findlay and Iliyana Pirinska

Something new for you to follow on Instagram @playfulinteraction – this is the home of the year 2 Playful Interaction module.

Lecturer Denise Milne says  ‘What we’re doing in the practical classes is applying the skills learned each week in fun and creative ways. We are taking the circuits off the breadboard and turning them into something playful. The module is about creating playful interactions and to do that I think it is essential that we re-experience the joy of play which will aid us in creating successful and effective playful opportunities for users.’

The posts below show some of the projects created in the very first session.  You can see how the work develops by following @playfulinteraction on instagram or checking back here –https://www.instagram.com/playfulinteraction/

Many thanks to Denise Milne and the students on the Playful Interaction module for allowing us to share your work.  The Playful Interaction module is taught by Dr. Tom Flint and Denise Milne.
