12:00 to 18:00
location: V2_ Lab for the Unstable Media

All are cordially invited to attend the public project exhibition by students of Leiden University's Media Technology MSc program. Students were challenged to communicate their own science-inspired statements as experiences within the exhibition, this year along the theme MUTATE. In small groups and through their own process, these students have created experiences for a public audience. MUTATE is the resulting exhibition with 11 works, each with a different take on the overall theme.

The exhibition project had three phases. First, students are asked to search for scientific insights that relate to the theme MUTATE. After sufficient exploration they were asked to formulate compelling statements related to their findings. Once this stage was completed they translated their statements into works that convey their statements as experiences.

Within Leiden University’s Media Technology MSc programme students are stimulated to develop a playful and creative approach towards science and academia. They are encouraged to translate their personal questions and interests into research projects. As part of this approach, we are open to unusual questions, unconventional research methods and alternative forms of scientific output besides written articles. Thereby installations, games and books are considered meaningful formats of academic output.

The Science 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.
