One-to-one research seminar meetings

One-to-one research seminar meetings were held with visiting Humanities Scholar Dr Colin Milburn at the School of Design and Art School of Art on 12 February 2010. These meetings were an opportunity to have dialogue on, and constructive feedback about, research projects and were open to postgraduate students and active researchers.

Following the success of 2007’s inaugural symposium: Immaterial and Material Visualisation,we invited Curtin teachers and researchers whose current research projects creatively employ visualisation systems, to submit brief outlines for the next one day symposium. The event was hosted by SODA’s Department of Art and the Studio of Electronic Arts on November 4th 2008. Our keynote speaker was Mike Phillips, currently Reader in Digital Art & Technology and Director of i-DAT, (at the School of Computing, Communications & Electronics,) University of Plymouth. Mike has extensive experience and is well known in this field of research. The Symposium was part of an ongoing ‘incubator’ project, intended to foster interdisciplinary research and collaborations in the creation, design, practice and critique of the translation of ideas into data and data to visualisations.

Researchers from across Curtin University were invited to submit brief outlines of current research projects that creatively employ visualisation systems for an upcoming symposium. The one-day symposium, 25 June 2007 at 202:122, was hosted by The Centre for Research in Environment Art and Materiality (now CRASH) in the Department of Art in conjunction with the Departments of Design, Architecture, Building and Construction, and Urban Planning in the Faculty of Built Environment Art and Design. Part of an ‘incubator’ project, the event is intended to foster interdisciplinary research and collaborations in the design, practice and critique of immaterial and material visualisation.

At the symposium we will address the topic of visualisation in short presentations and chaired discussions that focus on how emerging technologies and convergence are impacting all disciplines, and the ways in which creativity and innovation are taking key roles in the development of new research clusters. It is envisaged that the symposium will uncover synergies that exist within the Division of Humanities and the broader University research community — evidencing potential research clusters in this increasingly significant area.
