Final creations

During Digital Creativity Week 2019, the students worked in groups or individually to create final pieces for the exhibition.

On this page you'll find a combination of the pieces themselves and images of the exhibition event, all created by the students for the week.

Thanks to #YorkMinster for many of the images used in the exhibition and the work throughout the week.

Heart of Yorkshire

The room invited people to experience the Heart of Yorkshire; listen to its heartbeat, observe the places that have captured people’s hearts, be immersed in the love of the old and the new, and leave their mark on the Heart of Yorkshire window.

Click on either 1, 2, or 3 and draw on the window space, then view the current window.

The Unseen Data

by Alphaeus Talks

What happens to the missing data, and will we notice it is gone?

Fragile History

An interactive artwork representing how delicate our record of the past is and the difficulty of uncovering the full story.

It was displayed on a big screen, with a touch screen beneath for the audience to interact with the image and uncover parts of it.

View and interact with the piece on the p5js web editor.

The Continuity of Old vs. New in York

A multi-part piece spread across two rooms which looked at York's historical past and its connection to York's present.

The first part of the piece reflected on York's past and present by using digital technologies to place old features onto modern York.

The York Tourist - images blown up digitally

The York Tourist

The York Tourist section connected history with modernity, deliberately designed to be viewed best from a distance, reflecting on how a tourist must step back to see the Minster.
