Treacherous Torso Exposition at Northlight Art Studio

My first exposition relating to my PhD study was held on 26th July 2014 at my personal art studio.

An interesting group of women attended, resulting in some very fascinating and emotive responses from the participants. The level of engagement and dialogue varied from participant to participant, and there were some very interesting conversations.  Specifically, there were several comments about  how the sound created a physical sense of movement relating to different body parts. This proved very interesting in relation to the creative and theoretical aspect of my research.

Here is a short caption film of one of the participants interacting with Treacherous Torso: Sites of Struggle

New Artists Studio Space

Super Super Super!! After months and months of being on the waiting list I have at last  got my artists studio space  which I am really excited about (well I will be moving into a temporary space this week whilst the roof is being fixed). So… I will have lots of space to spread my work out, and hopefully I will be more productive with the practical aspects of my research because until now I have been doing everything at home, and have stuff everywhere which has not been easy when trying to be organised and creative at the same time.

GPS Orchestra at Octupus Collective

I have just come back from Barrow-in-Furness after attending a GPS Orchestra workshop organised by Nikki Pugh in conjunction with Octopus Collective. I had a great time experimenting with the GPS module alongside fellow attendees. The weather was a bit miserable, lots of rain but this did not deter our determination to take our instruments outside into the park to test. Here are some of Nikki’s images  Creative Commons License

Commencing new project as part of my PhD research called “The Speaking Frock”

I am currently working on testing some conductive fabrics to establish the best conductivity for my new project which is called “The Speaking Frock”  I will leave you to guess on that for the moment hopefully enticing you back for a further update.  There is some inspiration found here by the microsoft researchers exhibited at last years ISWC 2011 You are what you tweet – The Printing Dress
