THIRD MATTER: MA Art and Science Degree Show, 2017 ACTION DAY
Sat 27 May 2017, 14:00 – 17:00 BST
24 – 28 May OPENING TIMES | Wed to Fri 12.00 - 20.00 | Sat to Sun 12.00 – 17.00
Central Saint Martins’ graduates showcase innovative and thought-provoking work from the interdisciplinary MA Art and Science programme. With an eclectic mix of backgrounds, and individual exploration of the interconnecting field of art and science, works respond to diverse topics including: consciousness through sound, non-verbal communication across dimensions, alienation and reclaiming the self, and nostalgia and memory provoked by smell. The body is investigated through the tropes of scientific enquiry and models of artificial intelligence alongside considerations of genetic influence and evolutionary pressure. The effects of how we co-habit with nature are explored through themes of the Anthropocene, pollution, and interfaces between synthetic and organic matter. Experiments throughout the show will attempt to visualise particle energy and the audience is challenged to engage in a black-hole experience.
THIRD MATTER ACTION DAY Saturday 27 May, 14.00 - 17:00.
Provocative, challenging and engaging, the exhibition is accompanied by an events programme including performances, tours, and demonstrations.
