Major Project Showcase - The Wisteria Project

Over the next few weeks, we’re showcasing our final year student Major Projects! For their final submissions, third-year undergraduate students are put to the task of creating their own event. That’s it. Free reign on creative direction, audience experience, design and production. It’s safe to say that we’ve seen some seriously creative events and experiences in the culmination of three years of study. 

In the first special Major Project showcase, a group of final year students created an immersive and interactive installation that supported a fantastic local charity, Wakefield Hospice.

Immediately greeted by a cornucopia of colours, textures and magical objects, The Wisteria Project transported you to a wholly other place, where you could most certainly lose track of all time – this was a true escapist space!

The students invited the audience to be transported to a mythical forest, filled with interactivity that allowed them to control the lighting for a unique experience. By stepping on pads, the audience could trigger different soundscapes and audio tracks to create a change in the atmosphere. 

Hidden gems and treasures were placed throughout the experience to give a sense of exploration and intrigue, inviting the audience to interact even further with the installation and its contents.
