Students from City College Brighton and Hove design circuit board style artwork

Students from City College Brighton and Hove have been digging deep into their creative minds.

Paxton, a Brighton-based company which installs intelligent access control systems for buildings, provided the students with a brief to produce artwork to be shown in their premises.

Following site visits and presentations from the company, nine students developed proposals influenced by Paxton’s products, manufacturing processes and materials. Paxton were particularly keen for their circuit boards to be a key influence in the work produced.

The students presented a diverse range of work to a panel of staff who, after long deliberation, chose art work by Alice Gough as the winning concept.

Paul Rawlinson, joint managing director at Paxton, said: “One design stood out in terms of a contrast to the clean, tidy, high-tech and organised environment that our engineers work in every day was Alice’s clay, fossil-like models of our circuit boards. Her idea was truly inspired.”
