THE MOOSE & THE NOOSE is a two part project at the Hull College Group that will combine a ‘love letter’ to the Hull College Group and a University First at the 2016 degree show at the Hull School of Art and Design. This has been created to inspire, attract and reach out to future students wishing to study at the Hull School of Art and Design.
Sean Alton was branded a ‘Showman’. Due to his secret nature of his work, secret subliminal messages in work of around the Hull College Group, presentation skills, comedy writing, acting skills, inventing the ‘Altontation’, keeping his final major work a secret for the whole time, shock tactics, creating worlds firsts and using smells to enhance and excite the mind. He also does not take life too seriously by the style and approach of to poke fun at things that reflects in his creativity and design, he wants to put to bed acting and talking like a robot while presenting in the big bad world we call the design industry.
