Cities Methodologies 2013


Anja Borowicz and Vanessa Maurice-Williams – Urban Pathways and Seams of Space

This project focuses on the idea of movement and spatial identity in the city, questioning our response to various spaces through the language of painting, sculpture, performance and architecture. The exhibit is offered up for an interaction and engagement – to be walked through, picked up, worn and imagined.

Performative Workshop: Materials @ the Centre

This workshop was performed as a part of an event at the Institute of Making : Materials @ the Centre. This event brought together researcher from across the arts, sciences and humanities to interrogate the relationship between the cognitive and the material in research. The discussion proposed that materials, the act of making and processes of experimentation can fire the imagination in ways that complement language and make possible new ways of thinking.

Clay Project 2

Recent research is around thinking about different activities: artistic / domestic / scientific etc. There is an overlay of gestures, approaches, methods and medium in these areas but we are conditioned to accept these processes as separate e.g. when applying washing-up liquid with a brush to paper, one hardly thinks of it as painting.

Clay Project 1

Initial proposal:

Continue an investigation into domestic and cosmetic materials: their propensity to work as painterly medium whilst retaining unique materiality. In particular I would like to focus on working with different powdered clay masks.

Domestic Liquids Project

Initial proposal:

I would like to investigate various aspects of colours found in everyday household – both naturally derived (fruit/vegetables/plants) and artificial (household chemicals, makeup etc).

These materials would be explored on the basic level as stand alone colours, their application as pigments, and furthermore through analysing their chemical make up by using method such as paper chromatography/colour separation.

The project will be initial research into the area, possibly raising more questions and opportunities for exploration rather than providing answers.
