As it is the custom every year, CMP students have produced a substantial amount of excellent work for their final major projects. This work was elegantly curated in the Ambika P3 Gallery at the Marylebone Campus in the show that was called Exhibition Sixty1.

The majority of the work was installations and films so the atmosphere of the exhibition was intimate and even immersive as audiences were guided through the space by the lights of the individual projects.

As social media is a major study subject within Contemporary Media Practice, we figured that we might as well use it to do what it does best: connect.

Join our Facebook and Twitter pages to find out more about on-going CMP projects, student success stories, job opportunities, competitions  and of course, to find your fellow CMPers, past, present and future!

Help us grow this community so that we can all connect our ideas and take CMP to a new level!

CMP second years have been able to choose an interdisciplinary Art/Science collaboration module, Broad Vision, this year, led by Heather Barnett.

This has received press attention, with the Guardian newspaper publishing an article about this module, and quoting one of our students, Kitti Edwards:

“I would never normally have this opportunity to, for want of a better word, ‘play’ in a laboratory and use these different mediums to make art. You start to think about it all in a different way.”

The Broad Vision module is one of the opportunities that our students have to work in an interdisciplinary way on the course. It is an option module (one that students choose) and was developed by staff from our Photographic Arts and Photography & Digital Imaging Technologies courses, in collaboration with staff from Biomedical Sciences, Psychology, Illustration and Computer Science.
