A Nervous Encounter artists from the Central Saint Martins MA Art and Science present the fruits of their research at CSM Degree Show One, opening this weekend. The class are also hosting a symposium: State of Matter: Collisions and Connections in Art and Science.
The event includes an outstanding panel of guest speakers including Sir Jonathan Miller CBE (doctor, artist, director, writer, and curator); Dr Daniel Glaser (Director of Science Engagement at the King’s Cultural Institute, King’s College London); and Ariane Koek (Clore Fellow and Director of Collide@CERN).
There will also be presentations by the graduating students from the MA Art and Science. Presentations will be followed by a panel discussion about the value of art and science research and practice, including speakers and audience participation. Through the exhibition and the symposium, the subject of art and science as an interdisciplinary practice will be probed, scrutinised, questioned and debated.
The inaugural MA Art and Science degree show will present a collection of artwork inspired by a range of scientific interests, including cosmology, optics, the environment, nanotechnology and quantum physics. Students on the MA Art and Science aim to find meaningful and inspiring connections, engage in discourse and communicate their research through their art.
Register to attend the symposium here.
