IDEAS : PEOPLE : PLACES, An arts strategy to embed the arts in a genuine and meaningful way, in a small number of imaginative and innovative regeneration projects, funded by the Arts Council of Wales.
Tom was commissioned by ArtsReach to undertake a series of creative sessions under the above project.
Tom worked at Holyhead Secondary school in the technology department. He devised a series of sessions in collaboration with head of department and local artist Tim Dickinson. Using Minecraft as a platform the students designed a sreies of imaginary environments that housed a Minecraft architectural structure. This structure was devised without practical constraints or limitations, embracing the ideological notion of utopia.
A local 3-d printer company was invited to the school, and a display of the printer’s technology was explored with the intention of creating the student’s Minecraft structures.
