The Art and Science MA at Central St. Martins is the first of its kind in the UK.
The course determines and challenges the boundaries of art while locating theory at the centre of practice, and I am looking forward to applying to attend the course in September 2015.
The MA Fine Art studios are located in an independent building in Archway, so the course offer allows students a self contained studio building facilitating their independent working practices.
I spoke to Nathan Cohen, the course leader, and he was very helpful at outlining the course requirements and the expectations of students.
I get the feeling that the course encourages finding meaningful connections between the art and science disciplines, and that there are applicants from solely ‘scientific’ or ‘artistic’ backgrounds.
