"Newcastle In Motion"

Video projection for BCI first-year exhibition.

Co-Creators

Olivia March, Sera Carney, & Nicole Lenihan

This project was a video projection that was projected onto the side of University House from Newcastle City Hall. The aim of the project was to showcase Newcastle through a creative lens by entwining each creative's perspective of Newcastle into one combined 'lens' of the city. This was achieved via various mediums (artwork, photography and video) which were then compiled into a short film.
