Personal statement

Richard is an artist/researcher with a professional background in participatory media and education. He currently leads modules in the undergraduate Media programme, offering an experiential learning approach to exploring participatory cultures. He hosts a postgraduate reading group, currently exploring new materialism.

Richard’s ongoing investigation addresses the physical, sensory, emotional and intellectual experience of walking in particular places. His creative work generates content rooted in the complex layered mesh of embodied memories/ knowledge/experience emerging through intra-action with the material world.
