THIRD MATTER

Central Saint Martins’ graduates showcase innovative and thought-provoking work from the interdisciplinary MA Art and Science programme.

DATES | Wed 24th – Sun 28th May 2017

LOCATION | Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, 3rd Floor,

1 Granary Square, London N1C 4AA, United Kingdom

OPENING TIMES | Wed to Fri 12.00 – 20.00 | Sat to Sun 12.00 – 18.00

 

THIRD MATTER, this year’s MA Art and Science graduates at Central Saint Martins, present a stimulating event showcasing their unique insight into contemporary issues. With an eclectic mix of backgrounds, and inspired by their individual connections with the evolving area of art and science, works are responding to diverse topics including: Consciousness through sound; non-verbal communication across dimensions; alienation and reclaiming the self, to nostalgia and memory provoked by smell. The body is investigated through the tropes of scientific enquiry and models of A.I. and considerations of genetics and evolutionary pressure. The effects of how we co-habit with the landscape and nature are explored through themes of Anthropocene, pollution and interfaces of synthetic and organic matter and questions relating to the evidence of ‘being’ are raised from visualizing particle energy release to the existence of black-holes.

Provocative, challenging and engaging, the exhibition will include works developed from research undertaken by private enquiry and through collaborations with scientists. With student backgrounds spanning electro-engineering, fine art, film production, graphic design, photography to psychology, the creative relationships between art and science are explored in an individual approach expressed by a diverse range of media.

PRESS RELEASE: UNFOLDING REALITIES MA Art & Science Degree Show

New innovative work by pioneering Central Saint Martins graduates, that challenges the concept of fine art through interdisciplinary practice.

DATES | Wed 25th – Sun 29th May 2016

LOCATION | Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, 1 Granary Square, London N1C 4AA, United Kingdom

OPENING TIMES | Wed to Fri 12.00 – 20.00 | Sat to Sun 12.00 – 18.00

UNFOLDING REALITIES presents the work of 20 MA Art and Science graduates at Central Saint Martins. Since its inception in 2011 this pioneering course, the first of its kind, has provided a unique global platform for students across a wide range of fields, on which they extend and contribute to the expanding interdisciplinary branch of knowledge – Art and Science. Responding to this fast emerging territory for collaborative practice which redefines creativity across disciplines, UNFOLDING REALITIES practitioners from fine art, design, photography, neuroscience, art history, mathematics, choreography and architecture have been inspired by their individual connections and observations of the world and the challenge of interrogating this beyond disciplinary boundaries.

Bold, innovative work and research includes a large interactive multimedia sculpture where glass neurons provoke an out of body experience (JENNIFER WALSH); the exploration of paper fold- ing as a visual representation of the Theory of Everything (MARTA PANILLA); the launch of a transdiscipline through the uncovering of 300 year old bacteria collected by an antiquarian book (SARAH CRASKE); the exploration of the effect on our bodies when perceiving Earth from a distance (ALEKSANDRA BORYS); the re-presentation of the human body as a microbial land- scape (MELLISSA FISHER); the exploration of ‘Emergence Theory’ through Constructivist inspired large-scale screen-prints (CHARLOTTE WHISTON); and reflections on the advances in surgical techniques and increasing availability (MARY HELEN MAC).

This exhibition showcases works that have developed from experimentation with integrative techniques, long-term collaborations with scientists, use of familiar materials as unusual artistic media, and influences from historical and current scientific inquiry.

MA ART AND SCIENCE
This pioneering 2 year postgraduate course responds to a fast-emerging territory for in- terdisciplinary and collaborative art practice. The MA Art and Science gives students an oppor- tunity to interrogate the creative relationships between art and science and how they can be communicated. They explore different approaches to making and presenting their work with the aim of proposing and realising innovative outcomes in practice and research. www.arts.ac.uk/ csm/courses/postgraduate/ma-art-and-science/
