8th March 2017, Sir Tom Cowie Lecture Theatre, Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St Peter’s
Inventors! creator and artist Dominic Wilcox will be heading to Sunderland University on the 8th of March!
Dominic’s talk will take a high-speed journey through the Sunderland born artist and designer’s creative life so far, examining his constant search for ideas and inspiration wherever he can find it. Starting in Sunderland as a school boy and ending at the United Nations, via the Late Show in New York and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Dominic works between the worlds of art, design, craft and technology to create innovative and thought provoking objects and sketchbook innovations. Recent project ideas include the design of a pair of shoes with inbuilt GPS to guide the wearer home, a Binaudios device to listen to the sounds of a city, a race against a 3D Printer at the V&A, and a stained glass driverless car of the future.
