Currently researching for a practice-related PhD. The subject is the effect of technology on concepts of natural and synthetic space in relation to landscape.
My practice and thesis begin from an understanding of social structures as spatial and as performed.
My thesis examines work by Antonin Artaud, Henry Darger, Marcel Duchamp, and Pablo Picasso, with the intention of subjecting specific works by these artists to critical tests employing the idea proposed by Antonin Artaud's subjectile, that is a paradoxical fusion of both subject and object.
I create videos, sculptures and drawings that explore physical and mythical entanglements between humans and animals.
Kaidie runs to look for a/the Meaning of Life - but what a quixotic quest. For starters, 'run' refers not only to the sport and locomotion, but figures of speech including 'letting your imagination run wild' and 'being on the run'.
In this practice-related study I use a range of play theory to examine the creative processes behind the work of Eduardo Paolozzi, Philip Guston and Tony Oursler.
I work with video, photography and installation and am interested in the interface between the external world and the internal world of the imagination.
As a dominant Western visuality develops away from the system of linear perspective on which it was founded, and towards the digital and virtual technologies of cyberspace, the idea of somehow replicating 'natural vision', so long the basis of this visuality's authority, is forced into new territories.
Can photographs of pain mediate the space between patient and clinician to facilitate improved communication and rapport in facial pain consultations? Can an exploration of facial pain inform our understanding of portraiture and vice versa?
My research investigates concepts of imagination in Hannah Höch's independent and collaborative work. I ask where Höch locates her understanding of imagination within different conceptual frameworks, drawing on concepts of imagination from Bergson, Freud, Breton, Benjamin and Bachelard.
Sound box is a an archive of sound and performance works from the Slade School of Fine Art. All works were made by staff, students and visitors whilst resident at the school and exist on this site in a wide range of media including text, sound, photography and video.
The Graduate Research Weeks' research themes involve basic notions that continually inform the activity of art-making, and hence are key to the development of artistic research. The research themes this academic year: Colour, Material, Body, Extra-Large, Light and Shadow.
The inter-relationship between race, power and language has been chronicled in various forms.
Laura Cinti is a practicing artist working within the intersections of art, biology and nanotechnology.
Mikhail Karikis' doctoral research was a methodological experiment, which employed academic writing, music composition and art practice to explore notions of the 'self' through the study of voice and sound.
A project exploring artistic process organized by Patricia Townsend and the Slade PhD students.
This research project examined the concept of mediated presence through the perception of inanimate images coming to life, and the converse experience of human actors becoming inanimate images, whilst interrogating how this might articulate, substantiate or defy belief.
The Voice and Nothing More (vanm), curated by Sam Belinfante and Neil Luck, is a week-long festival exploring the voice as both medium and subject matter in contemporary arts practices.
To mark the 40th anniversary of John Cage's seminal publication Notations (Something Else Press, 1968-9) Notations 2008 presented a range of investigations into what notation is - and can be.
Working with the Slade School of Fine Art, four artists – in China, Uganda, Israel and Australia –each filmed a 12 minute video in a locale connected to their work, under the title The View From Here.
This was a two-day symposium of papers, films and panel discussions and the third in a series of yearly interdisciplinary student-run events, organised by the Slade School of Fine Art and the Bartlett School of Architecture.
This project comprised six separate weeks of concentrated activity by clusters of graduate students electing to work under the respective umbrellas of specific research themes: speed, light, time, colour, scale and space.
The aim was to present research themes, which could be productively explored in the space; basic notions which continually inform the production of art, and hence are key to the development of artistic research: Weight, Water, Touch, Body, Land, Air.
