Artist Savinder Bual and engineer Simon Harvey have collaborated to create this hands on workshop looking at what the transformation of energy and sustainability means for artists, engineers & designers.

This is an in person workshop with limited capacity, please email P.Wright@brighton.ac.uk to book your place. The outcomes from this workshop will be available online after the event. This workshop will take place at the Advanced Engineering Building, University of Brighton Cockcroft Building, Moulsecoomb, Brighton BN2 4GJ.

Savinder Bual is an artist whose practice explores the interplay between the moving and the still. She creates works that sit between the pre-cinematic and the digital. Bual studied painting at Winchester School of Art and photography at the Royal College of Art, London. Since then her work has screened and exhibited widely, including Turner Contemporary, Wimbledon Space, Focal Point Gallery, Peer Gallery, Standpoint, Caraboo Projects and CCA Glasgow. She was a recent recipient of a Jerwood Bursary and is currently working on a commission for Whitstable Biennale 2022.

Simon Harvey is a engineering doctorate (EngD) student working in partnership with the Univeristy of Brighton and Ricardo. A graduate from the University of Brighton, Simon started his foundation year in 2012 and finished his MEng in Mechanical Engineering with first-class honours in 2017. With a keen interest in automotive engineering, Simon pursued and completed automotive based projects throughout his degree. Designing the drivetrain for the University’s first Formula Student car in his third year, and a battery pack for an electric motorcycle for a small Brighton based start-up in his masters year. He received a studentship for his current EngD research, titled “A novel approach to zero emission combustion for ultra-high efficiency internal combustion engines”, a funded collaboration between the University of Brighton, Ricardo and the EPSRC on the recuperated split cycle engine.
