Day one with the theme 'Art, technology & science ideas offered a selection of a broad range of fields.
First up was Heather Barnett, an artist and lecturer in Photographic Arts, who introduced us to Broad Vision programme being conducted at the University of Westminster.
As an interdisciplinary initiative, now in its second year, it provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to engage in interdisciplinary and collaborative research and learning outside of their own area of research such as photography, biological sciences, microscopy or digital imaging.
Following Heather's overview, Joshua Dinsmore, a recent graduate in Photographic Arts and participant in the programme, provided his map of the interdisciplinary scope of Broad Vision using the analogy of how ants create emergent systems.
As part of the presentation's participatory element, the audience were given pens and papers and Mellissa Fisher, graduating this year, instructed us to draw as if speaking to us on a telephone.
Despite not having heard the instruction, it seemed everyone's drawings were drastically different - demonstrating the degree of variations in interpertation.
Finally, John Smith, a lecturer in Imaging Science involved in the programme, concluded the Broad Vision talk pointing to the next steps, including a student led symposium and an upcoming exhibition.
