A Sound not Wholly for the Ear explores de-centred listening. The thesis presents an analysis of 20th and 21st century compositions that transformed the act of listening prior to situating my creative portfolio, an original composition for artist Agatha Gothe-Snape’s Rhetorical Chorus, within this lineage of ideas. I propose methodological categories of conceptualism and affect as strategies to de-centre listening.
Ceramics is a practice full of hope and dissapointments. It can be disheartening to open a kiln and see your expectations crushed. Making ceramics not only presents lessons in patience and skills but develops an ability to cope with persistent failures. Just like life, some things are beyond your control.
This multidisciplinary, practice explores the phenomenon of the selfie (understood as a networked, vernacular, photographic self- portrait) in order to propose a new critical understanding of the effect this emerging genre has on wider photographic self-portrait practice and photography in general. These explorations happen firstly through the creation of original digital and electronic artworks; secondly through interviews with contemporary artists; and finally through the discussion of cultural and photographic theory.
