After a busy start to the year A1 students have started to settle in well and friendships are being forged producing studio shots in the style of Richard Avedon.
A fantastic exhibition is currently at The Lowry combining art and science.
Project Nimbus is a collaboration between artists, scientists & makers.
Dave Lynch takes art and science to create some exquisite individual pieces.
Primarily a neuroscientist he takes inspiration from how the brain works.
Very interested in movement he has taken inspiration from great artists of the past such as Muybridge, who also had a scientific approach to his work.
We especially enjoyed The frozen music collection, using viewers brainwaves to create the piece itself.
The exhibition also explores digital art as a medium. Capturing digital moving image to record the changes in light waves using glass as a magnifier.
And of course we visited The Lowry exhibition highlighting his life and work.
Although we really did get inspiration from Dave Lynch.
Here are a few photographs of what our brain waves looked like.
An interesting day was had by all today at The Imperial War museum. We certainly learned a lot, Saw a fantastic video projected on the walls using all gallery archived photographs and sound clips.
The photographs are excellently lit with some high key studio lighting and show some real life army solders who served in Afghanistan.
And some limo cut prints on paper inspired by the aftermath of world war 2 by Helmuth Weissemborn.

So after a long summer break, I hope that you are feeling inspired and ready to create some magic!
After our amazing photography results last year, you all have a lot to live up to but I am confident this year will be fantastic.
The room is ready, I'm inspired and looking forward to this jam packed year.
Look up at the Stars and not down at your feet. Prepare to push the boundaries, broaden your horizons, make mistakes and expand your skill set.
