Within Leiden University’s Media Technology MSc program students are encouraged to develop a playful and creative approach towards science. Students are educated to translate personal interests and inspiration into research projects. We are open to unusual questions, unconventional research methods and alternative forms of scientific output besides written articles. This includes installations, games and books as a possible result from academic research. The Statement to Experience project is a good example of this approach: students are challenged to translate their own science-inspired statements into works that communicate these statements as experiences within the exhibition..


CERTAINTY is the overall theme for this year’s exhibition project. The students work in groups, each with their own process. The exhibition project has three phases. First, students are asked to search for scientific insights that relate to the theme certainty. After sufficient exploration they are asked to formulate compelling statements related to their findings. Once this stage is completed they translate their statements into works that convey their statements as experiences. The opening of the exhibition takes place on Thursday December 12th, 17:00 - 19:00 with a ceremonial event at 17:30.
