RE-TOONS

RESEARCH FOR ART AND DESIGN THROUGH CARTOONS
Featuring the M.A. R.P.T. Project ‘TRACK’ as it ‘re-tooned’ and supported by some observations on the enigma of ‘practice based research’ in an academic art and design institution

The first retoons......defining practice and possible routes....Track 2?

TRADITIONAL PRACTICE

NEW AESTHETICS

NEW CONTAINERS

PRACTICE: past From traditional art practitioner to ‘new media’ artist. Focus on sense of place and keywords (2005) Rural, radical, political, ecological and place centred. Drew on ‘older’practitioners..Hockney, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Fay Godwin, Paul Nash, Conrad Atkinson, Sebald, Geddes, Iain Sinclair, Newling etc etc. Future? New Media: Exploration of ‘new’ practice. A role for cartoons? (Brandl?)

THEORY: first phase Starting point ‘Rediscovering Aesthetics: Transdisciplinary voices from Art History, Philosophy and Art Practice. (Stanford Uni. press 2009. Elkins, Woodford et al. Henry Jenkins Popper, Colson. Discovered Coyne:Tuning of place. Brandl and Elkins further theory... Chicago School? Georg Simmel, Benjamin. ‘Eco-criticism’:Various. Deep mapping in poetics: Amy Cutler

SEPARATING THEORY AND PRACTICE: Theory of place and contemporary ‘new’ aesthetics separated from practical creation of artefacts. This led to a redefinition of ‘practice’. Each artefact resesignated as a prototype. Series not single app. Viewed each ‘app’ as a test of various future practice strategies. CONTAINERS NOT CONTENT.
