Nick Lewis is a Lecturer, Illustration & Design at the University of Sunderland. Nick has worked in the games and animation industry for over 20 years. He has contributed to a wide range of projects from console games to educational animations, and has been lecturing in Illustration and Animation since 2014. He has a broad skillset, including 2D and 3D animation, digital illustration and traditional media.
Nick led the Animation group of artists and IT professionals who collaborated to produce a number of artworks:
- Hot to Touch
- Reflective Mirrors
- Red Filter on the Wall
- Marigold UV Light
In keeping with the CEWO theme of Reflecting Understand, Nick used mirrors to explore how distorted, distributed information can be reflected into comprehensible messages. Through positioning mirrors in certain points, what appears to be innocuous patterns could for example turn into a hidden, jumbled up password that could enable access to another interaction / exhibit, etc.
