Doctoral Research
I recently completed practice-theory doctoral research in Animation in Contemporary Art at Kyoto Seika University, Kyoto, Japan. This research is partly reflective of an interest in the  process of making Art and Animation the relationship between the two media. It also involves looking at the field of Animation Studies as it has grown and how Contemporary Art produce fits within that framework. Thinking about artistic practice as a research method is also integral to the outcomes of the research. How artists globally uses animation politically to address local and cultural concerns has also been a key focus. I have been fortunate to be supervised by Japanese media artist and theorists Keiji Aiuchi and Shinsuke Ina in the Film, Video & Media Arts Department. Jacqueline Berndt from the Graduate School of Manga Studies and Morihiro Satow from The Design and Visual Culture Department also provided key supervision during this process.
