Friday was the launch night of the University of Portsmouth’s Showtime 2011 event at the Eldon Building featuring work from foundation through to final year graduating students on creative courses including fashion, fine art, 3D, graphic design, illustration, tv production, computer game design, etc. The evening was very busy with people catching the two fashion show either live or via the live feed or wandering around between the different floors checking out the exhibitions of work. Particular personal favourites were the 3D computer games demos (amazing), the meat cushions in 3D, the (mockumentry?) music producer film in TV, dressage horse stills and a book about the Wedgewood Rooms in photography plus the store in illustration with loads of cool zines, badges, prints and more. Props to the tv production crew who had loads of ice cold beers and fan heaters too which made the hot evening even better.
Below are a random handful of photos from Friday but we’ll be highlighting some of the students and their work over the next couple of weeks…lots to be proud of when it comes to the amazing work and students from the University. If you have any photos from Showtime and want to contribute them to Strong Island get in touch.
P.S. Don’t forget you can still see the work yourself until the end of the week, check the link above for full details.
