An artist teacher and recent graduate of the MA Art Practice and Education at BIAD, School of Art, my practice-based PhD research focuses upon the resonant, magical, movable object in questioning new pedagogies, experiences, perceptions and in the production and recognition of the future school art-room.
In questioning the tensions and interactions of student-teacher-teacher-student relations, practice-led investigations involve in-school photography workshops examining policed environments and objects in collaged and overlapping states.
Research is underpinned by the role of third-site pedagogy, examining other pedagogical art practices that engage and combine contemporary making in educative spaces, allowing departure from and redistribution of ‘normalised’ education practice.
