An instance of travelling in practice-led research: Talk in 5 minutes
Hybrid practices with (or without) digital or interactive technologies can transport us to unexpected new spaces and places; On our nomadic practitioner journeys we transform: move, change and coevolve through thinking and experimenting with tools, creating objects, artefacts, experiences, new ways or methods, languages, and production paradigms. This five minute reflexive talk; explores how becoming more open and receptive to co-creative approaches of this nature can positively enhance, shift, transform and transcend; us as practitioners, our approaches, and methods and the disciplines themselves now and in the future.
I have collaborated with colleagues from within School of Art, Design & Architecture and in School of Music, Media and Humanities and external partners from outside the University on various phases of an evolving AHRC/EPSRC research project focused on the 3D Environments, acoustics modelling, animation and music of prehistory since 2009. This practice led trans-disciplinary experimental immersive acoustic research is concerned with understanding and exploring the ritual praxis of Neolithic makers of Stonehenge. The multiplexity of unanticipated experiences and un-expected data we sourced, created, developed and disseminated together, is shared in this talk at PhD by Design. During the progressive phases of this practice-led transdisciplinary research, we, as practitioners: artists, designers, theorists, makers, musicians, historians, curators.., collectively gained a deeper understanding into how humans: then and now, and the technologies we make, can generate a unique transformative contribution to the dissolving of physical, disciplinary and cultural boundaries.
