How do we expect a Journal for Artistic Research to look? What is the role and status of the design and layout of an exposition?

In JAR, all artists start with a white page onto which text and other media can be layered giving them control of the look of an exposition and not just its content. We have noted that, although initially intended simply as the expansion of artistic authorship, the fact that our contributors have to engage with design has had an interesting side effect. From a reader’s perspective the first encounter - before the first sentence has been read or the first video watched – has become very important. It is as if the point of delivery of a journal article has shifted forward, or as if this first encounter with the aesthetics of a page and the order in which material is arranged, anticipates what the exposition’s meaning (or ‘sense’) may be. Judgements about quality or artistic status seem to have become possible on the basis of a first glance. Click here to Read More

OPEN EXPOSITION

OPEN EXPOSITION

This work is an exploration into a personal use of spoken language though a predefined process intended to mirror that of my painting practice. A similar process of self-imposed limitation is applied with the aim of suggesting both an autobiographical residue of my own thinking, and open up a potential dialogue for the reader...
