The Travelling

The Travelling Briefcase: Totems of Everyday Spaces Stacey Coughlin Working within the field of arts and health, the focus of this visual arts-based practice is co-creating with older people with dementia living in care homes. The research is exploring an approach to creative engagement through the construction of unique temporary art spaces. These spaces are a form of sculpture, experience, installation and dialogue influenced by relational aesthetics aimed at changing everyday experiences in mundane spaces. Using a hermeneutic phenomenological methodology, the aims of the project are to develop a process to co-create bespoke Temporary Art Spaces with older people with dementia living in care homes and to catalogue key themes and environmental factors that influence the co-creator’s creative engagement. The project is currently in the piloting stage, and a form of ‘Object Dialogue Collection’ is being developed to capture data and text to use in the research and the process of creating temporary art spaces. This collection of small sculptures is created from found objects to produce a range of interactive pieces. These art objects, or totems, reflect unique experiences and spaces that may be familiar to most people i.e. Home, Work, Nature. Through the process of discussing an external object; memories, opinions and ideas can emerge from the experience of space, place, art and creative engagement to influence further design. Braille Tile System Sean Crumlish Most Braille has two forms, grade 1 (un contracted) where each cell is equivalent to one letter, and grade 2 (contracted) where a single cell can represent a letter, word or phonetic sound depending on the context. Think of grade 2 a little like shorthand, a space saving tool designed to reduce book size. This is especially important for Braille as cells cannot be reduced in point size. Imagine printing the bible in 12pt and you can see why space saving is so important. My tile system is designed to be a cheap, printable teaching aid, which can be used as a cut out tiles for work exercises or as an embossed poster “cheat sheet” if left intact. The posters biggest function is to help the sighted understand the nature of Braille, by deconstructing it into its base parts. This in turn can help parents or educators (many of whom will be learning Braille with the child in order to teach it) quickly understand and check work without necessarily having to be able to read the embossed aspect perfectly. This tool is designed for beginners who are moving on from grade 1 to grade 2, but it can be used just to teach grade 1 by ignoring the bottom tiles. It was designed to be embossed using basic equipment available to blind users and comes in two forms: a true Braille scale where tiles also have accurate spacing and a jumbo tile: where the point size is the same but the tiles are four times bigger for those who need larger tiles to handle them properly.

SHEET I – Muddled. 2016 Ella Devi Dabysing My work stems from a want, of wanting to understand the human mind in more depth, but more so understand the layers of the mind that aren’t so black and white. For, the subconscious mind is one that has often been referred to as, the ‘untranslatable core’; so, it is almost impossible for the conscious mind to fully grasp what the subconscious mind truly entails. In trying to understand the subconscious, I have found working with paint in a loose and abstract manner has allowed me to engage with that part of my mind. In doing so, my work has embarked on allowing me to create various gestures through paint, that translate as being parts of the subconscious mind branching out in a fragmented way. As, where I create marks with my brush it is the subconscious part of my mind I am allowing to speak in its own language. My piece, SHEET I – Muddled, corresponds to the theme, ‘Changing Lives’ - In a way that allows us to, think more in depth about our mental state of mind as being either, healthy or not healthy. This is an extension of, how we are now in an age where mental health is becoming less of a taboo subject and exploring it in depth is vital in helping and understanding our supressed emotions and thoughts. Women who wear male gendered clothing: responsive clothing developments for changing gendered social attitudes Philippa Jackson This interdisciplinary study mixes practice and participant-based enquiry informed by phenomenology. It aims to understand the motivations of women who choose to wear male gendered clothing for fashion and to use this to question gender assignment in clothing, through practical experimentation. Fashions’ relationship with current social attitudes, particularly referencing gender assignment, will be explored. Pamela Church Gibson reflects my thoughts in stating that fashion is a performance and ‘fashion is a storehouse of identity kits’. Grounding for this study, arose from my own experience of experimenting with gender boundaries in fashion. The work addresses ‘Changing Lives’ in many ways: attitudes towards gender in society and the movement of gender boundaries in fashion. One of the key areas of my study is to be the mode of presentation. I intend for the practice to exhibit at stages throughout, at events such as this conference, and in suitable gallery spaces as the need arises. My suggested installation for this conference is a visual illustration of my thoughts regarding the main topics of my study as outlined above. The piece will be multimedia, and open to inclusion of pattern pieces, apparel and photography; currently undefined, it will take the form of a wall-mounted piece or freestanding artwork. This will be the first exhibited work for this PhD study
