This programme offers a unique opportunity for artists to collaborate in the world of science and provide impact and knowledge exchange from a number of different fields
The MA Art in Science programme is a studio based programme with collaborative practice and discovery at its core.
Programme aims: -To make you aware of practical applications of art in a science context and be guided in understanding how this translates through a sequence of set and self-initiated projects. -To develop real world skills on a programme unique to the UK and decide which areas of art and science you wish to follow as the programme progresses. -Explore art and science project briefs in unexpected forms. -To develop a personal practice that challenges traditional perspectives in both disciplines. -This is a unique opportunity for artists to collaborate in the world of science.
A particular emphasis will be placed on acquiring and developing existing skills and to provide opportunities to enhance and apply them within an art/science context.
Learning takes place predominantly through the creative and critical exploration of research focused Art in Science projects and the programme will encourage you to work across other disciplines. There will be a number of opportunities to collaborate with students and staff from the School’s other MA programmes in Fashion, Fine Art, Urban Design, Graphic Design and Illustration, and Exhibition Studies, particularly during two modules shared by all the postgraduate taught programmes.
The Art in Science teaching team are all practitioners and researchers, who attend conferences, contribute to books, journals and exhibitions, and generally keep abreast with current theory and practice within Art and Science related creative arts and industries. Staff have particular research interests including craniofacial identification, medical and forensic art, art and science collaboration, 3D modelling and animation, public engagement, bioart and life art. These interests have all informed the design of the MA programme.
