Episode 6 - Mr. Robert Mackie
In this episode, I interviewed Robert, one of our New Media Art students graduating this year from the University of the West of Scotland and I asked Robert questions around his experience of managing and completing his undergraduate dissertation. It was really interesting to learn about how Robert connected different disciplines through his research, and how his practice as a methodology informed his research findings. His dissertation investigated alternative ways of digital avatar design by incorporating psychoanalytic concepts and experimenting ways of abstraction to reveal hidden dimensions of a sitter. In addition, Robert also shared how his research project helped him develop a new portfolio and set of technical skills. I would like to special thank Robert in joining me in this episode.
Episode 5 - Prof. Laura Gonzalez
In this episode, I interviewed Prof. Laura Gonzalez to discuss her current research and PhD research projects. Prof. Gonzalez shared critical insights into arts-based research including 'embodying theory,' 'mistakes,' 'innovating a style of writing as an artist-researcher' as well as wonderful advice for other researchers.
Episode 4 - Dr. Andrew Knight-Hill
In this episode, I interviewed Dr. Andrew Knight-Hill regarding his own PhD and recent research projects. The challenging, complex and evolving relationship between practice and theory (perspective) was discusse indepth and Dr. Knight-Hill also shared a set of helpful tips for arts-based researchers.
