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. Media Technology MSc is 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 semester project is a good example of the approach of Media Technology MSc: students are asked to translate their statement into a work that functions within an exhibition context.


LANGUAGE’ was chosen as global theme for this year’s semester project. From this global theme multiple subthemes were derived: 

abstractcodecontextevolution,gesturelovesynthetictranslation and universal.

The students work in groups of typically three, each with their own sub-theme.

The semester project has three phases. First, students are asked to explore their theme in the broadest sense (social, mathematical, biological, etc.) and discover what it could possibly relate to. After gaining sufficient insight they formulate compelling statements related to the theme. Only once this stage is completed they translate their statements into installations. Together these installations form the semester project exhibition.
