For the Research module, the first step is to send the responses to three sets of questions to my tutor, to get a response and on the basis of this to write a 1000 word research proposal which narrows down and refines the first 3 questions.
This is my first list of resources (Question 3), a brief note on how they relate and how to negotiate access (which may not be relevant to how the Research/dissertation will unfold).
For the actual submission of A1, a further refinement happens on the back of some initial feedback.
Exercise 3: Identify resources
Relevant artistic work
- Joan Jonas
- Drawing Ambiguity
- Sophie Calle
- Aperture / Performance
- Amelia Jones et al (eds)
- Juliana Spahr thisconnections, The Transformation
- Bhanu Kapil
- Chris Kraus
- Katrina Palmer
Interdisciplinarity/ mutability and technology of form/process (possibly simply: methodology)
- Hilevaara/Orley eds
- Stephanie Springgay
- Donna Haraway
- Kristin Ross/ Bini Adamczak
- Friedrich Kittler
>> some of this also concerns: The body/ the sensorial: agency/ control and the post-human
Space, site (utopian, phenomenological)
- Ursula LeGuin
- Gordon Matta Clark
- Noemie Goudal
- Henri Lefebvre
- Site as method: Lucy Lippard
- Sarah Ahmed on orientation
<< many of these overlap and filter into other of these rough headings.
Reading Springgay and co-authors and following up Cultural studies <-> Critical methodologies; I wonder if I can work through this material with an interest in methodology as artistic practice that operates interdisciplinarily. I.e., to take the doing of the BoW to enquire into the how and use this to open a space across the different media forms and possibly also explore how this space is utopian/ relates to the institution?
The gap as the opening, entry point for this. Hilevaara/Orley’s introduction and practice of folding as question and first marker.
Gatekeepers and other access
These seems to concern primary research for the dissertation more so than what I anticipate this piece of work to currently be: an academic discussion of existing literature and research that relates to my Body of Work. Yet: I can also see that it may make sense to identify either practitioners or researchers to contact; to possibly conduct some interviews, a focus group or similar. I will spend more time on these considerations when they arise. Otherwise: access to library materials through UCA and UofG; to galleries and archives as they are publicly accessible or bookable by appointment.
