On May 24th I had the pleasure of viewing Central Saint Martins Degree Show 2016, Show 1, which presented works across courses including MA Art & Science, MRes Art: Theory & Philosophy, and BA & MA Fine Art, amongst others.
Of the many and varied concepts explored, ideas and themes in and of nature were especially prominent this year. Standout graduates and postgraduates of the Class of 2016 included:
"Since its inception in 2011 this pioneering course [MA Art & Science] 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." Central Saint Martins, April 2016.
