    Students create a space odyssey

    Middlesex University’s centre for creative courses, The Grove, was transformed by bold and experimental work of fine art students at an annual day of events – with a space theme. 

    The student organised event saw students experiment and push ambitious boundaries as far as possible. The day saw collaboration between fine art, sonic art and performing arts students with some spectacular results.

    Installations included a box occupied by a student for the day, sculptures, and live art shows.

    First year student organiser Michelle Brown said: “I’m interested in curating, so it is great to get practical experience of what it’s all about. It’s been hard work but has been rewarding – it’s been good to have this experience as soon as I got to university.”

    There were serious messages in some of the artwork, MA student Marco Contino’s piece ’16,000 per sq m’ draws attention to the price of space in London, and final year BA Fine Arts student Lucyia Stone used her installation to draw people’s attention to the plight of bees in the UK. Lucyia said: “We need bees, it’s important to raise awareness of their importance. We need more people to plant bee friendly plants and are calling people to lobby their local councillors and MPs”
