research & writing > experimental geographies


In November 2010 I attended a 5 day research seminar based at Dundee Contemporary Arts: “Working creatively with sound and image: a collaborative interdisciplinary learning workshop for researchers.” This seminar formed part of the experimental research network that I’m part of, and followed on from an earlier week at the University of Edinburgh [see-hear-make-do] which was much more discussion driven. The purpose of both events was to explore audio and visual research methodologies.

The DCA seminar was practice-based, with, every day, participants working on projects related to the environment we found ourselves in, collaborating with other participants, experimenting and trying out new ways of working, meeting later to show, reflect and discuss the work which was made. The city, and its history, became a jumping off point for our explorations.
