RADAR is published annually by the School of Art, Design and Architecture. The review highlights the interdisciplinary and diverse work taking place in the School, as represented through the selected profiles of our current academics. Encompassing a variety of practices and research interests, RADAR includes a range of early career to established researchers. Its intention is to communicate and signal our research both internally and more importantly externally. We hope that RADAR acts as an open invitation for artistic and intellectual exchange and for collaborations in the education and creative industry sectors. We see RADAR as a way to seek mutual benefit; we recognise that research is never individual but is inherently collaborative. This manifold nature leads to an increasing potential of research and enterprise to contribute to the cultural, social and economic well-being of society.
