It's like, well . . . anartshow Judith Anderson was second. Two works from Amber Clark who finished third. Social media and the real world merged in a recent exhibition of artworks by Nelson students where viewers could vote for the works they liked'' best. The interactive exhibition was part of LIKE Week run by Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology Creative Industries students. LIKE is a reference to the Like button on social media site Facebook where users show their appreciation of a posting by hitting the like but- ton. Creative Industries programme area leader David James said LIKE Week had been a great success. More than 100 students ranging from certificate level students to those in their last year of degrees took part. Artworks were displayed throughout the first floor of the institutes's Arts and Media building, known as G Block. Viewers could vote for the artwork they liked best by placing smiley faces next to the artwork. It's an opportunity for students to experience selecting work for public presentation and having it open for the public and students to come and see that work,'' David said. It was the second year that LIKE Week had run, he said. The artworks were exhibited anonymously so viewers did not know who the artists were or how experienced they were. The three students with the most likes had their work uploaded to NMIT's Facebook page. David said it was a good learning experience for students who learnt a lot about the exhibiting process. Casey Chamberlain-Marks won first prize, Judith Anderson was sec- ond and Amber Clark third. We also had the contemporary students playing at lunch-time as well, so it just kind of made the whole week a great opportunity for people to come to look at artwork ranging from sculptural work to painting and listen to music,'' he said.
