Cryptic Art & Science, exhibition 4-8 October


‘Cryptic – Art & Science’ is an innovative show bringing together the work of 15 international artists and scientists from the Central Saint Martins’ Postgraduate Art programme.

Cryptic Art & Science

The participating artists, who are entering into the final year of their MA Art and Science studies, will be investigating topics including: what does our genetic make-up say about us; how we are connected to the earth through molecular energy; the new materiality of being human in the 21st Century; the ritual of memory and extinction; climate change and the rise of the seas; collective consciousness and what lies beyond the ‘event horizon’ – peering into a black hole.


An inventive approach is taken to the use of media with artists coming from a diversity of professional and creative backgrounds such as engineering, fine art, publishing, art and film production, theatre, photography, psychology, textile design and storytelling. Inspired by their individual connections with science a wide range of processes and media is used to respond to the issues considered. Expect toothpicks, latex, digital and video platforms, emerging biological forms and chemical reactions.


The exhibition will include works developed from collaborations with scientists, experiments with processes and the use of familiar materials as a novel medium for artistic exploration and influences from current and ongoing scientific inquiry.


Commenting on the event, Neus Torres Tamarit, as curator and exhibiting artist says: “This student-initiated show comes at the moment before we commence our final year of study. It showcases the creative energy and the evolution of our investigations as we prepare for our degree show.” Inspiring, pioneering and risk taking the artists wish to engage with the audience to inform, educate and challenge.
