'Brighton Rocks' is an installation produced for the Brighton Festival by three postgraduate architecture students at the University of Brighton: Vicki Foster-Key, Kate McNamara and Fiona McWilliam.Erected at the entrance to the Pavilion Gardens, it deals with ideas about a sense of place, and of change over time.The giant stick of rock was originally wrapped in cellophane, which has now been removed to expose the pink covering of casein-based paint mixed with sugar.As the elements wash away the outer layer, a selection of engaging messages will be revealed.The students' tutor was Jenny Lowe.The festival runs until 23 May.

Student Showcase is sponsored by Students'Union, a website set up by Union in association with The Architects'Journal at www. students-union. net.To submit work for publication in Student Showcase, email a publication quality image to ajstudentshowcase@emap. com
