Surface Tension - Connecting creativity Across Portsmouth - Aspex Gallery 2017



It was great to attend the Aspex Autumn celebration last night and see the exciting work our current BA(Hons) Illustration students, recent graduates and alumni (Josie Keable, Rainatu Habib, John Lihou and Ollie Tubb respectively) have been involved in as part of the current Surface Tension Project.

This project formed part of the Victorious Festival and is currently on show at the Aspex Gallery. The exhibition runs to 15th October 2017.

A small exhibition has been set up in the three glass cases near the lecture theatre. This is part of an ongoing collaboration with Illustration and the Library. It shows paper cutting, engineering and a small selection of books that the library hold on this subject. If you wish to borrow any or view them please contact the staff.

Induction week

Here are some images and Haiku poems from last week. It clear we have an energetic and enthusiastic group. We look forward to seeing what they come up with during this academic year.





"On the pier i see

The moving flow beneath me

I wave at the waves"

-Ahmed aka Tatts

Unchanged by time passed
identical in a row
the soul of my town
-Ally Stevenson

In the dock she waits
snubbed by her predesesor...
she is keen to leave
-James Williams

As I look across the water
I see what lies ahead of me
I wonder what lies beneath
-Tom Pippard

A magic fountain
grants generous wishes
dreams and desires
-Kristian House

On first inspection
everything looks normal
take a look again
-Aimee Lee
