Arklow Group Create Great Films Using Magnets


Andrew Manson is a local artist from Arklow who worked with us for six weeks as a part of a postgraduate course for the National College of Art and Design.

Andrew brought his ‘art ambulance’ which he uses as a mobile art studio to our BrÍ Nua centre. Andrew designed a magnet art project which he has used with other community groups. He has different coloured metal backgrounds, each participant chooses pre made magnets and arranges them as an image; this is photographed and turned into a postcard.
Each of the eight students sent their postcards. As a group it was decided that each student would design their own magnet which Andrew suggested could be animated into short films. The result you can see for yourself right here at the following link…. http://www.youtube.com/user/fionaviola1
Perhaps you can get their autographs now they’re published film makers!!
