Architecture students present work at Cheriton Light Festival

Masters students from the University’s School of Architecture (KSA) will contribute to the largest winter festival in the county and one that transforms the seaside town of Cheriton.

The nocturnal festival near Folkestone, which launched in 2013, is a biennial event designed to lift the spirits in winter by celebrating light and art within the community. It attracts more than 10,000 visitors.

KSA students studying on the MA Architectural Visualisation programme, along with KSA course director Howard Griffin, will display two installations, titled Virtual Cities and A to Z-Axis, which aim to highlight the three-dimensionality of the digital world that they are involved in.

Cheriton Light Festival is produced by arts charity Strange Cargo and sees more than 70 installations using the medium of light situated around the streets and in 50 residents’ homes.

The festival is held on 24 and 25 February 2018 and features artists from across the UK, as well as Germany, Palestine, Greece, Peru and Turkey.
