Research Blog

Through Presence and Process


I am currently undertaking my MA Fine Art at Bath Spa university.

Part of that course is the creation of a research blog, found on these pages.  These pages are public, but they are also the sketchbook of my study, and as such are fallible. This blog is a form of practical research and may contain repeated information on occasion, i'm learning much of the following information as I write and I would like to take the opportunity to encourage comments.

Below the posts can be viewed by three distinct types, by tags, through a chronological list of posts (found at the bottom of the page) or searched using the search bar. 

Research Methodologies

These posts are about the research of research, containing terminology and my notes and thoughts from lectures given on Tuesdays and research inspired by them.

Includes ; reflective posts - reflections on my practice (both research and studio). It's worth noting that while they are based in theory the word ‘I’ appears often.


These are summaries of the information I've been researching, in areas around my practice.

Includes theories, artists and exhibitions. 

Also includes studio research (here used as another term for studio practice).


These notes are honest, created in the moment, and often relate to the research I'm thinking about at the time or as a result of studio practice.

These posts are generally unreferenced, as they mostly occur while in the studio, driving, falling asleep or otherwise undertaking daily life.
