MTC Artist residency

Artist Residency at the Manufacturing Technology Centre
2017 – 2018

Works from the 12 month Artist Residency at the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC). The artworks created during my residency served to improve the aesthetics of the five buildings for employees, whilst also reflecting the company’s goals, ethos and technologies. I was involved in many projects producing a range of artworks from Virtual Reality (VR) drawings to story booklets. Many of my works took inspiration from the microscopic imagery collected when examining metal structures.

A Changing Industry: Connecting Art and Engineering
2018

The co-curated exhibition A Changing Industry: Connecting Art and Engineering, brought together Loughborough University Students and MTC staff members. The exhibition provoked thoughts of how Art and Engineering can be interlinked and created a free platform for students to promote their artwork. All the proceedings from artworks sold went to the Clive Hickman Foundation.
