About ExpoTees London
Once again ExpoTees London will be celebrating exemplary work in animation, games, concept art and visual effects demonstrating creativity, imagination and industry-standard skills. Students from our Skillset-accredited courses have gone on to work on award-winning film and games titles and we invite recruiters and producers to speak to this year's graduating cohort about their projects, view their portfolios and listen to their ideas. Together with celebrating the achievements of our students there will also be an opportunity to network with the many School of Computing & Digital Technologies alumni that make up much of the animation and VFX industry in the south east during a networking event facilitated by Teesside University's Alumni Association.
ExpoTees London will also host Morphogenetic Creations, an exhibition of computational art by Andy Lomas, who previously had a career in CGI in television and films, having worked on major hits such as Avatar, Walking With Dinosaurs, Over the Hedge, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions. Andy's art explores the use of computer algorithms to simulate natural processes, resulting in rich evocative complex alien but familiar forms. His work has received wide acclaim internationally, being exhibited at venues including the V&A, the Pompidou Centre, the Los Angeles Metropolitan Museum of Art, SIGGRAPH, the Science Museum and the Royal Society. Andy has won two Emmys and the Lumen Gold Prize for computer art.
