University of Sussex Degree Show 08 - Media Practice and Theory

.welcome

...to Plug.us.in, the University of Sussex Media Practice and Theory Degree Show for 2008!
This exhibition is the culmination of three years of hard work from students in the disciplines of photography, documentary film, and interative installation, and demonstrates the formidable technical and creative skills developed during this time.
This website provides details about the show, as well as previews of the students' work. Use the links at the top of the page to view the information on offer, or jump straight to an individual student's work using the quick links on the right.

Situated on the beautiful University of Sussex campus, this year's exhibition is truly unforgettable. Explore a series of gallery rooms featuring the professionally mounted work of our photography students, who have tackled a broad range of issues, from drug use in Brighton, to the problem of light pollution. Then marvel as state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment screens the documentary film-makers' innovative explorations of racial tensions in Paris, eco-communities, and much more. Finally, immerse yourself in the interactive exhibits, where creative flair has combined with technical expertise to produce a diverse and outstanding body of work.

The show will open with a bang on Thursday 15th May; this will be the first opportunity to see the culmination of three years hard work from the Media Practice and Theory finalists. There will be a drinks reception to kick start the evening, with a chance to view the fantastic photography and interactive projects on display throughout the building. Following this, screenings of this year's documentaries will take place at 5pm and 8pm. This will be the first chance to see the 2008 MPT films, and food and drink will continue to be served throughout the evening. This night promises to be an extraordinary showcase of talent from one of the most innovative courses on offer at the University of Sussex - definitely not one to be missed!

Due to limitations of space, we regret that the opening night is attendable by invitation only. However we welcome requests for invitations from anybody currently working in the media. If you are employed in a relevant field and would like to attend, please get in touch and we will try to arrange an invitation.
