Invitation CERTAINTY
The Media Technology team invites you to this year’s Statement to Experience project exhibition with the title CERTAINTY. Media Technology students are encouraged to develop a playful and creative approach towards science. The Statement to Experience project challenges students to translate their own science-inspired statements into works that communicate these statements as experiences within the exhibition. The overall theme for this year’s exhibition project is CERTAINTY . 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.
