In my research, teaching and consultancy, I investigate ways in which artists make sense of place, and consider how this work can inform critical understandings and practices of place, specifically in architecture, art practices and spaces, and in place management. This work contributes to knowledge of arts practice and the ways we experience, conceive of, engage with and articulate place.
Areas of Research / Professional Expertise
My research is primarily situated in areas that speak to architecture, art, performance and place.
My research emerges in part from my own interest in and experience of noticing and enquiring into particular places. This work is, then, in dialogue with life and with practices of living in or visiting places - walking, scrambling, sitting over fine coffee and the like. As such, spending time in a place and, particularly, walking in a place, become critical practices in themselves and also starting points for unfolding investigations.
