The Central Saint Martins Photosculpture group is a collaboration between students, technical and academic staff from MA Fine Art and the BA 3D Pathway. We have collaborators and friends across UAL, notably at Camberwell and in the UAL Archives and Special Collections. We are working with colleagues at the University of Southampton, in Archaeology and at Winchester School of Art. We are also part of the International Print Union, including ENSAV La Cambre, Brussels, The Royal Academy of Fine Art, Antwerp and the Hochscule fuer Grafik und Buchkunst, Leipzig.

What might be produced and deduced from accidental outcomes of the 3D process and through provocative misapplications?
