March 26th, 2012 · No Comments · PhD

I had a crack at the Second PIM (Post-Industrial Media) symposium hosted with the guest Professor Andrew Morrison. I produced the riff ‘Before and After: On Becoming a Reflexive Practitioner’.

May 27th, 2009 · No Comments · research

I found this article ‘Linking geographical facts with cartographic artifacts” by Bill Cartwright really useful when I first started thinking about issues around to many talking heads in the Real Vision: Colombia prototype developed with World Vision and the final Bogota:Colombia online version.

facing the bleeding obvious

November 24th, 2008 · No Comments · PhD

In my last GRC, my revised summary of my research took a nose-dive into the trash as what I seem to have been avoiding came back and bit me on the behind. Now, as I look at the 40-odd thousand words ahead and writing up the projects I have been cooking for the last few […]

November 5th, 2008 · No Comments · PhD, videodefunct

I have not written much about a project that myself and the VD collective have been working on for the last few months with an International NGO.

MCD feedback

April 29th, 2008 · No Comments · research

exegesis output

October 5th, 2007 · No Comments · PhD

Notes from Laurene’s exegesis presentation for a project-based PhD. I learnt that: The exegesis can be an amalgamation of the durable record and written theory, or remain in separate parts. The exegesis can be chronological, thematic or project by project in form – as long as the methodology carries the argument within that structure. An […]

Expand the lexicon

October 5th, 2007 · No Comments · PhD

The Bruce Mau Incomplete Manifesto for Growth is being used to inspire ideas in Integrated Media at the moment. I noted no. 28: 28. Make new words. Expand the lexicon.
