Andrew King

I am Senior Lecturer (Games Art) and Joint Programme Leader for Animation, Games Art, Music & Sound.

My academic practice is in the field of content creation for real-time immersive experiences focusing on generative and procedural techniques for rapid iteration. My pedagogical approach encourages students to play, move and have fun.

I am a proponent of exploration and experiential learning that is contextualised and supported with community-based knowledge exchange and consolidated by active-learning and innovative approaches to retrieval practice.

My academic practice is in the field of content creation for real-time immersive experiences, focusing on generative and procedural techniques for rapid iteration. My pedagogical approach encourages students to play, move and have fun. I am a proponent of exploration and experiential learning that is contextualised and supported with community-based knowledge exchange and consolidated by active-learning and innovative approaches to retrieval practice.

My practice investigates the visualisation and disruption of space in immersive experiences through an interdisciplinary examination of digital and analogue visualisation techniques fused with the art, practice and artefacts of temporal cartography and way-finding.

Recently, I have talked about my practice at two international Adobe summits and have contributed in the writing and delivery of several online courses to tens of thousands of international students covering subjects such as Game Design and Concept Art.
