The 10×8 Project will be exhibited as part of the MA Photography and MA Fine Art Interim Show at the Cass Gallery in March. 10×8 involved 10 artists editing 8 images. This project looks at digital photography on the Web and in particular, image search on the web. It also looks at the process of creating images in the digital era.
The MA Photography and MA Fine Art Interim Show will see 20 students from The Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design and London Metropolitan University presenting their work at The Cass Gallery, located opposite the Whitechapel Gallery in Whitechapel High Street, London right above Aldgate East Underground Station.

“Why have IP at all? The reason is that creative labour is valuable and important. It is noble work, work that is worthy of recognition and reward. It is work that should be dignified with the grant of a small dollop of state power – a property right.” Professor Robert Merges from Justifying Intellectual Property 2011.
