Co-hosted by The Centre for Media Research and The Centre for Cultural and Creative Industries, the event aims to capture new insights into ways of engaging with creative and practice-based research, spanning fields of Media, Creative Writing, Dance, Computing, Art, History, Photography, Music, and Education. We are pleased to welcome Joanna Callaghan, Chair of Practice for the Media, Communication and Cultural Studies Association (MeCCSA), whose opening talk will explore best practices and emerging approaches in the field of filmmaking research, discussing work from the AHRC Filmmaking Research Network.
Speakers from the University of Southampton, University of the West of England, University of Sussex and Bath Spa University will present their published practice-based research, spanning topics including postdigital media, digital writing, fiction machines, multi-platform education, games curatorial practice, and app development. We will end with a roundtable discussion exploring the emerging roles of creative research in higher education.
Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with the artistic compositional work of Owen Lloyd (Lecturer at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama), whose installation on 'Composing With Crystallography' – exploring creative opportunities within crystallographic data-sets and modelling algorithms, itself also published as multi-media artefacts in the journal – will be running in the afternoon and throughout the event in the Commons Screening Room (G53).
We will also introduce the winner of our inaugural Award in Creative Media Research: 'Affective Cinema' by Pavel Prokopic, which will play on our MediaWall between March 25 and April 5. Affective Cinema is a practice research project in film, informed by traditions of art and experimental cinema and philosophy. The work expands the potential of cinema by producing experimental film structures in which nuances of performance and new feeling of meaning can be identified.Show more
