OSL Practice

"In OSL we open public space as well as the private spaces in which we learn. The project explores how it is we can enhance what is fashionably called the student experience of learning. Experience involves risk-taking, it involves experiment, it involves not knowing the outcome of particular areas of exploration, but being willing to take the opportunity that the opening of a space affords them. The students whose work is central to this project come from diverse disciplines but they come together in the driving open of a space in which they also make time, they make time for learning. OSL is an opening to time and to history. It offers, maybe for the first time in our times, the real risk of a student experience."
