Final year students at the Royal Academy Schools have been busy showcasing their pieces of artwork, several of which were created using Epson technology.
The on-site Epson Digital Suite provides students with the opportunity to experiment and create their unique pieces with the very latest Epson digital imaging technology available.
All 17 students worked with Epson technology at some time during their three years at the schools and it featured strongly in several students’ work at the show this year.
Mark Hampson, head of materials process, RA Schools, said: “The ways in which our students interpret, abuse and interact with the possibilities of digital technologies never ceases to surprise me. They are both accepting and suspicious of new technologies and are enviably adept at the manipulation of them as raw materials.
“Often as artists they utilise digital technology against its expected commercial functions and this creates hybrid, surprising and creative artistic consequences. As our students travel on these often illogical and idiosyncratic research journeys and investigations Epson have continuously supported us, offering the latest equipment, advice, encouragement and knowledge with their complete trust and approval. This collaborative response is unique within the worlds of art and industry and we are grateful that Epson offers us the opportunity to embrace the potentials of new digital mediums. In doing so, they have helped us evolve as a 21st century art school of much-admired and acknowledged contemporary status.’’
