Metartmorphosis art competition

Metartmorphosis art competition is looking for students to design artwork to be permanently displayed in the Tower Courtyard at Holloway Road Campus.

Date: 03/03/2015

Students can win the opportunity to display their artwork in the Tower Courtyard, which will help raise their profile and add experience to their CV. In addition to having their work displayed, the winner will receive £500, second place £250 and third £100.

The artwork could take several forms, including:

  • Free standing artwork
  • Screening
  • Paving art
  • Seats
  • Structures
  • Living walls
  • Mural
  • Mosaic

Both students and alumni are able to submit their designs and details of how they will construct the artwork, including a budget proposal, or to submit the design and details of how it can be constructed to allow the Estates Department to manufacture the installation. The total construction cost must not exceed £1,000.

The entrants will be encouraged to consider particular strands in their submissions to act as a starting point. These could include but are not limited to:

  • The University’s past achievements 
  • The University’s future
  • University’s contribution to reducing its environmental impact
  • Interpretation of what sustainability is
  • The University and the local community

The participating students and alumni will be asked to provide a brief outline of how the artwork meets the above themes, sketches of artwork, cost of installation including budget breakdown and details of whether they can manufacture the artwork themselves. Entrants are invited to submit a photograph or scanned copy of their artwork, which may have originated on paper, canvas, digitally etc. The sketches should be A3 in size.

Entrants should send their work, along with a completed application form, to Rachel Ward, Estates Energy Manager:
