A Cass Research Seminar enaging with the questions around image making and capturing as a form of research.
Speakers will be Luke Jones and Anna Mill (authors of Square Eyes, a graphic novel see https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/nov/14/square-eyes-anna-mill-luke-jones-review-graphic-novel).
Mark Collington and Sandra Denicke Polcher have jointly been working with Animation and Architecture students since 2015. Their collaboration demonstrates how a synthesis of different cultural theories and practices from animation/film and architecture can produce new forms of transdisciplinary design thinking. Case studies from fieldwork in London and Belmonte (Italy) illustrate how a ‘rough and ready’, stop motion, ‘sketch’ and ‘lo-fi’ approach can be applied to client-led, site-specific projects, and also lay the foundation for knowledge transfer initiatives to stimulate new areas of employment.
Cass Research Seminars are a series of public conversations which enable
researchers to test and present their ideas in conversation with peers
and a broader audience. The sessions seek cross-fertilisation of ideas and provoke discussion. Typically, they consist of two to three presentations of 15 minutes each followed by chaired discussion.
We had a productive year in 2017/18. Presenters found that the session deepened their work and added unexpected avenues to their thinking. All are welcome at Cass Research Seminars, both from inside and outside The Cass.
