Student media show reveals the art of love, loss, truth, beauty – and football
The beautiful side of football, the plight of migrant workers and the mysteries of the mind are some of the inspirations behind the degree show by final-year Media Practice and Theory students at Sussex.
The Envision 2012 show runs for one week from Thursday (24 May), 9am–5pm, in the Silverstone Building.
Paul Vincent, Senior Media Production Tutor, says: “This show will again exhibit our students’ progressive and acute interrogation of the media.
“Their work, excellent in itself, builds significant connections between practice and theory. Our finalists should be proud exhibiting work of this calibre to visiting industry professionals.”
