Based at the Electronic and Digital Art Unit (EDAU), which houses an extensive archive of international artists’ video work, the project will focus on research and analysis of the potential relationships between physical and virtual space that has been developed by artists working with video over the last 40 years.
The specific focus of the project in terms of the artists, works and processes to be studied and examined, and the format of the research outcome(s) would be determined by the student in consultation and with the guidance of the supervisory team.
It is envisaged that the selected student will be a practicing artist with an interest and/or specialisation in the electronic moving image, but the research may be either practice-based, practice-informed, or entirely academic in its approach and final outcomes
Scholarship Application Deadline: 3 May 2011
