Who we are

Dr JOHN HILLMAN

What unifies John’s interests is the exploration of how theory can enrich and offer new insights to creative practice and lived experience. His approach is distinctive in its foregrounding of theoretical ideas and in how it attempts, not to explain phenomena through theory, but to elucidate theory as it appears within contemporary culture.

KRISTIAN JONES

Kristian’s work focuses on New Media Art and digital interaction, combining generative graphics, algorithmic procedures and sound / sensor-driven technology. His research currently focuses on surveillance culture and human-computer interactions.

CARLA HAMER

Carla’s research engages with how photographic encounters between photographer and photographed subjects are seen as transparent evidence of ‘reality’ that is then turned into images for the viewer’s aesthetic pleasure. She is interested in the possibility of photography to challenge a representational logic, which normalises relations and discourses of power by assuming the ‘other’ as passive, preceding and definite.

JOANNA FURSMAN

Joanna’s research combines the fields of the photographic image, art practice and pedagogy to examine contemporary appearances of school. She explores how returning to education in a landscape newly shaped by the pandemic looks and feels.

JO GANE

Jo’s research is based around photographic archives and history. Central to her practice is the idea of the photograph as a two-dimensional slice of history and its function in relation to the progression of time. She uses historic photographic techniques such as the wet plate collodion process, daguerreotypes, calotypes and photogravure to make contemporary images that disrupt the linear representation of time.
