A group of forty Creative Digital Media Production students descended on The Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Wakefield to photograph and video the works of art on display. They discovered a huge selection of modern and contemporary sculptures set in the grounds of Bretton Hall.
The weather was kind - not a cloud in sight, as the students set off across the fields in search of subjects for their work, excited by the prospect of the open air experience of these amazing artworks. Everyone enjoyed being able to get really close to the work - there are no barriers, and all were free to touch the sculptures and explore the surfaces of these great works of art. There was a real sense of freedom which led to some great experimentation with the cameras.
The students were able to bring a wealth of material back to Craven College. Many commented that they wished they had more time to spend in the park as it was impossible to see everything in one day. The unanimous verdict was that the visit had been an amazing experience, leaving a strong impression on all who took part.
