Fine Art Digital Enviroments (FADE) @ Chelsea Colleage of Arts, UAL

During my time at FADE, I worked closely with the Principle Investigator, Prof Paul Coldwell, on a three-year AHRC funded project entitled “The Personalised Digital Surface.” This practice-led research project considered the role of the surface of the print and how, when working digitally, the relationship to that surface can change. The FADE project culminated in a symposium and conference at the V&AICA, and the publication “The Personalised Surface: New Approaches to Digital Printmaking,” enabling me to develop the skills to manage the complexities of publishing and organizing symposia within universities in association with international art institutions.

The Personalised Surface within Fine Art Digital Printmaking

This two year project led by Paul Coldwell & Barbara Rauch was supported by a grant from the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and conducted through the FADE research project, Chelsea college of Art & Design, the University of the Arts London.

The project ran from 2007-09 and considered the role of the surface of the print and how when working digitally the relationship to that surface can change. The project used case studies as an aspect of methodology, documenting new work by Paul Coldwell ,Bruce Gernand, Dan Hays, Tim Head, Christian Nold, Kathy Prendergast, Barbara Rauch and Sissu Tarka. The project culminated in a symposium at the V&A 3rd April 2009 with speakers Coldwell, Marilyn Kushner, Dan Hays, Gill Sauders, Barabra Rauch, Ruth Pelzer Montada, Catherine Mason Bruce Gernand and a conversation between Coldwell and Michael Craig-Martin.
