Art student Christopher Wyant found a novel way to exhibit his works for a university project: display them as objects in a game of Team Fortress 2.

To give his exhibition a little extra punch, Wyant inserted pictures of his ceramic works into the online shooter as stencils, took screengrabs of them, then posted those screengrabs in a gallery alongside the actual pots he'd made.

"As a ceramic artist I have to look at the historical context of my work", Wyant says. "Why should my art be relevant in a contemporary setting when people have been making pottery for thousands of years? By placing my pottery into a video game, I hoped to bridge this vast gap in time."
