She has broad experience working freelance as a video editor and animator. She has created three video installations, Elements of Life (2004); A biography of JMW Turners life told through the use of the elements as a five-screen video installation. Natural Perspectives (2005) A mix of interlinked imagery over three screens which examined different perspectives of nature. Natural Perceptions (2016 – ) is an evolving interactive installation exploring the way we perceive nature through art and animation. This uses motion sensors to trigger animations as the visitor approaches. It has been shown in three different locations so far, in different guises, and will be shown in more locations to help discover how environment and structure changes the way the art is perceived.

Richy Carey is a sound artist and composer. Broadly speaking, his work looks at the way we listen to film, thinking about what the sound of an object or material is, not the sound it makes. He’s currently doing AHRC funded PhD research into the relationship between materiality, language and film sound at Glasgow University.

Wednesday 1st November the School of Media Art and Design will be hosting a visit from Professor Stephen Partridge, who was a member of Sub-panel 34 (Art and Design) in the last REF. Steve is currently Professor of Media Art and Associate Dean of Research (Art & Design) at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, University of Dundee: https://www.dundee.ac.uk/djcad/staff/stephenpartridge/
As part of his visit Steve will be holding an open meeting/Q&A, to which all colleagues in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities are warmly invited. The session should provide a good opportunity to discuss preparations for the next REF with someone who has first hand experience of the REF process, and who has experience of assessing practice-based research submissions. Thus I hope the event will be of particular interest to practice researchers in the Faculty.
The session will run 1.30-2.30pm Wednesday 1 November 2017 in room Pf06.
