An installation is a visual or sonic art work that is designed to be 'installed' in a given space, creating an entire sensory experience for the viewer. It can be of any length, can occupy any space (or even several spaces), and can be of any size. It also often has a clear connection with 'real life' and the space in which it is presented.

Students on CMT and MTP have created a variety of interactive and site-specific installations which have been presented in diverse contexts, from the Leicester Space Centre to a Victorian Sewage Pumping Station, and in galleries and concert halls throughout the city and beyond.
