The space is equipped mainly with Apple G5 computers set up primarily for photography and graphic design work running a range of applications including Adobe Creative Suite. One of the computers has headphones set up for editing video/sound or working with multimedia applications and runs Apple Production Suite (Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro, Motion), Macromedia Director, Dreamweaver, Photoshop and specialist sound software. Other equipment available to research students includes further computing, scanning and printing facilities, specialist equipment comprising Canon XM2 video camera kit, Canopus analogue/digital converter, Sanyo moby system, Sony digital data projector and 2 cased HHB minidisk recorder kits. A Hasselblad Flextight X5 drum scanner for fast high quality scanning is accessible through a booking system.
The research students’ space can be configured as a work room and also as a seminar room. Cross-college research seminars are held each month, where students have opportunities to present their own work or hear about other research topics. Research Degree Student Shows are held every year, which research students are encouraged to co-curate. Other public gallery space is available throughout the year for students to showcase current research projects.
