Install4, Vikki Ellis

A collaborative undergraduate exhibition of installation-based work. Led by Guernsey born artists Pete Appelqvist and Vikki Ellis, along with UK based artists Manoj Sawlani-Ramos and Amanda Eady, the four have created a group installation transforming the greenhouse space. Employing a combination of media including sculpture and projection, the work is installed to interact with each other, leaving no piece to function autonomously.

Super 8 workshop – view the films made

Local film makers, film enthusiast and those who just wanted to give it a go took part in our Super 8MM Film making workshop earlier this year, led by two local film makers and Straight 8 ( finalists Lindsay de Sausmarez and Chris Denton. Super 8 is a fantastic medium and the resulting films posted below really do show how creative you can be with just 3 minutes of film and a soundtrack, made seperately, with no editing…we hope you enjoy the films.
