A digital design studio in Sheffield is hosting a unique exhibition of futuristic video artworks.

A necklace that changes shape as you wear it and a ‘scary’ visualisation of visitors’ social media followers are just two examples of what to see.

Universal Everything, a studio known for exploring new technologies, is displaying various innovative graphics as part of Sheffield Design Week- an annual event celebrating design in all its forms.

Patrick Murphy, Director of the event, said: “Sheffield Design Week is to give life to a lot of design companies that are based in Sheffield to express what they do.”

The Universal Everything exhibition is also part of Sheffield Hallam's Catalyst festival of creativity that brings a range of exhibitions, workshops and events to the city until November.

One piece of artwork taps into the social-media-crazed modern world by visualising people’s Twitter followers as animations that physically follow the user wherever he or she goes.

Patrick said: “It’s actually quite scary when you realise just how many followers you’ve got on social media.”

The exhibition in the Cantor Building at Sheffield Institute of Arts Gallery on Arundel Street is free and open every day from 10am- 5pm until November 6, with extended opening hours until 8pm on Wednesdays.
