"Research at Nottingham Trent University takes place in all our Schools, in all our subjects- from Art to Zoology. Alongside the reports, books, papers, keynote talks that you might expect, many times our researchers produce things as well as words. These might be: art works; 3D designs; visualisations of scientific insights; fashion; images produced from ethnography; film and theatre production; costume designs and more.
We think of it as something like a gallery, except without walls, or with just one, a virtual wall - hence the name. Each three months or so there is a new show to see, carefully curated round the work of one researcher or a small group. The variety of our work means that an exhibition of interactive art work might be followed by one about the visualisation of nano particles, or on the ancient architecture of Oman.
Wall5 is a way to show how these things articulate with the knowledge our researchers generate and let us demonstrate the full spectrum of what we produce.
Wall5 launched in November 2010. As each show is replaced it will appear in an archive section, so if you like what you see you can check back later. Also, look out for WALL5 groups on social media sites for updates on the exhibition programme."
