Congratulations to HND Graduate Lyndsey Hunter who’s wonderful degree show has earned her 1st Class Honours. Lyndsey studied HND Public Art, the fore runner to Contemporary Art Practice and was able to use her HND to go straight into the 3rd year of the Design & Digital Arts Degree course at Napier University.
Lyndsey’s final project was developed from an interest in the illusionary aspects of high budget theme-park rides and an analysis of data gathered through a survey of the publics deep rooted personal fears. Her response was to produce an multi sensory immersive environment which gives the viewer a very authentic sense of being lost in the woods at night with a distant lightning storm approaching.
As well as designing these immersive environment, which she hopes to be publicly sited in museums, Lyndsey has also started her own print company called The Hunter Press. Specialising in event stationary and print The Hunter Press will be a fully operation print press studio using 3 newly restored Hiedelberg Windmill Presses.
