Workbook documents the residency process of the Institute for Imagined Futures & Unknown Lands whilst Artist in Residence for Bridging the Gaps, funded by EPSRC at Swansea University from September 2012 – May 2013.
It is both artwork and document. A limited amount of copies come with a ‘recipe for optimum outcomes’ badge. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like a copy.
On Tuesday 23rd July the Institute invited performance poet Howard Ingham (top image on left), who has also been working at the university and has done in various capacities for the last twenty years, to give a tour to the small focus group comprised of artists Jason Cartwright, Owen Griffiths, Becky Williams and Fern Thomas. Ingham’s tour reflected his personal account of the history, research and questions relating to the university.
Later the focus group wandered around the university buildings and grounds and sat in the cafeteria space in Fulton House to discuss issues surrounding the languages of art and science and the role of the artist in a university context. A micro project is in process to reflect this one day discussion.
