You will be introduced to dramatic ambient visual displays and public projections that are supported by productive, applicable research. You will create a display which will be projected onto a prominent city building. This work will be accompanied by a rationale and a research folder.

Located in the University's Coventry campus, at the School of Art and Design, the course's emphasis is on producing solutions which are arresting and provocative, integrating time-based sound, movement and imagery. You will have access to state-of-the-art facilities and will be guided by experienced and dedicated members of staff who will take you through this journey. Sessions will be a mix of lecture-style presentations, discussions and practical workshops.

Course content will include:

  • Current affairs debate: what are problems, what are crises, what can be done?
  • Turning research into action: what's the point of research, what does it really do?
  • The ambient, dramatic moment: how does this work, what does it achieve?
  • Articulating and developing an approach
  • Images, sound and words
  • Software techniques
