This Is How It Feels explores the intimate stories of eighteen transgender men and their journeys of transition from female-to-male. Holcombe uses new media art techniques, including augmented reality, to give audience members a glimpse of the FTM transgender experience through their own perspective. The exhibition features manipulated QR (quick-response) codes that explore the relationship between the lived experiences of the transgender man and the fabricated world of social media. These codes, in turn, ask audience members to participate in a new context of social media, both inside and out of the gallery space.
Did you know Aberystwyth University holds an outstanding collection of prints? If you would like to learn about the different ways prints are made, and get hands-on experience of our print collection, then History of Printmaking is for you. The course surveys the development of printmaking from the 15th century to the present with reference to the work of many famous artists including Dürer, Rembrandt, Goya, Piranesi, Gillray, Whistler and Picasso. By the end of the course you will know your mezzotint from your aquatint, have a good historical understanding of the role of the print in society and be able to start collecting prints with confidence.
