UWE Bristol Talks at the Arnolfini - Professor Stephen Hoskins and Roger Conlon : Tacit Knowledge

This event has finished


Are we in danger of losing the relationship between materials and making? If so, how does this affect our access to creativity and our understanding of visual language? UWE Bristol Professor Stephen Hoskins and Roger Conlon explore ideas about ‘making’ with reference to art and design research, teaching and practice.

Through illustrating and discussing a range of 2D and 3D objects and processes this talk challenges some current thinking about art, design and making and draws out the importance of the relationship between materials and how we make and think creatively.

An understanding of how materials behave and the ways they can be transformed is central to the creative process. This ‘experiential learning’ from the material world forms the skills and ‘tacit knowledge’ that makers apply to their work. It also creates new knowledge and ways of thinking through the unpredictable, unexpected and unanticipated outcomes that only materials can provide.

The importance of this could be lost in an increasingly virtual world where decisions about ‘making’ may be arrived at through assumptions and expectations that are made away from this physical and material experience.

Report November 2016

Bristol and Bath by Design Project hailed a success by AHRC

BBxD (Bristol and Bath by Design) have been working together over the last two years to collect data on design companies in the Bristol and Bath region to gain a better understanding of the economic and cultural value of the design-led sector.
BBxD have found that Design is integral to a diversity of commercial activity in the region in its role as a process for creativity, innovation and problem solving, as a means of communication, and in the value it adds to the experience of the consumer.

Carinna Parraman, Professor of Design and Innovation at the University of the West of England, said:

“Bristol and Bath were identified as Design hubs as far back as 2010 but our findings demonstrate that a great deal of design work in the region is under-appreciated, unacknowledged, or ‘hidden’.

CFPR PhD student Becky Gooby presents Poster at PICS 2016: Variables that affect colour in digital textile printing

Author/Co Author:
Becky Gooby
conference:PICS 2016 - Progress in Colour Studies
Place: University College London
Date: 14-16 September 2016
Poster Presented by: Becky Gooby
URL Links:http://pics2016.uk

The development of digital printing is a major change within the textile design process - as a designer is no longer restricted to number of colours, repeat patterns and may include photographic images and intricate detail. With digital print it is now possible to print anything between a metre, or hundreds of metres, at the click of a button.

However, there is a marked difference between screen-colour and print colour. A textiles designer using Computer Aided Design (CAD) to create a design will be required to experiment with a number of variables in order to feel more confident about the outcome when using digital fabric printing.

There are already various software, materials and printers involved in digital printing which impact on colour results. Additionally, fabric choice and secondary processes (washing and steaming) contribute to colour variation. The poster charts these variables and outlines the affects they have on printed colour. Variables include, but are not limited to: fabric, ink, software, printer, profiles applied, and secondary processes (washing, steaming)

Hybrid auxetic foam and perforated plate composites for human body support


Dr Peter Walters has published a joint publication in the Basic solid state physics journal

Farrow (University of Bristol). R. Jones (MS Research, Treatment and Education, The Vassall Centre, Bristol). A. Davies-Smith (MS Research, Treatment and Education, The Vassall Centre, Bristol). C. D. L. Remillat (University of Bristol). H.-X. Peng (Zhejiang University). P. Walters (UWE Bristol).
The article describes the design, manufacturing, modelling and testing of a hybrid composite support made from auxetic open cell foam liners and curved thermoplastic plates with rhomboidal perforations for human body support. Both the foam and the curved perforated plate have in-plane negative Poisson's ratio behaviour. The static bending stiffness of the hybrid auxetic composite support is modelled using an analytical and Finite Element approach benchmarked against experimental results from three-point bending tests. The benchmarked Finite Element models are used to develop a map of optimised static stiffness versus the geometry of the rhomboidal perforations. A Design of Experiment testing campaign is also carried out on 16 hybrid auxetic composite plates to understand the interaction and correlation of the static bending versus the geometry of the perforations and the contribution given by the auxetic foam liner.

IMPACT 10 Will take place in Spain - Autumn 2018

Please make a note in your diary for Autumn 2018 (dates to be confirmed) - IMPACT 10 will be going to Spain!

The Centre for Fine Print Research, University of the West of England Bristol, are delighted to be working with and supporting SM Pro Art in the organisation of IMPACT 10 in Spain 2018.

Over the last 16 years, IMPACT has evolved as Europe’s leading academic discourse on printmaking. Printmaking is now integral to the wider academic debate, through practice, theory, visual culture, and is studied across a range of programmes, from undergraduate to PhD.

Spain has a rich cultural printmaking heritage as well as a thriving contemporary printmaking culture. We therefore want to ensure IMPACT 10 will be a visual and dynamic event that includes exhibitions and plenty of opportunities for networking.

The aim of our next IMPACT is to establish better links with Spanish printmakers both in Europe and across South and North America. And in order to do this, we will be introducing bi-lingual presentations in Spanish and English.

The theme of the event will be ENCUENTRO (ENCOUNTER)

- An ENCUENTRO with Spanish printmaking, its history, iconography and identity

- An ENCUENTRO with the future of the printmaking, new directions, identity and diversity

- An ENCUENTRO of languages and cultures

- An ENCUENTRO of styles and techniques

- And… an ENCUENTRO with the city where Impact will take place

In the summer we will announce more details about IMPACT 10 in Spain through our website UWE Impact

An exhibition articulating the textures and character of age and skin through nineteenth century photographic print processes.

Dates: Wednesday 4th – Friday 13th May 2016

“Dermis” presents a selection of works prepared by Centre for Fine Print Research student Peter Moseley as part of his practice-based PhD project.

The exhibition reflects upon the resonance of skin, making the physicality of older people more accessible, their variety more curious, their experience more evident, their skin and bodies sources of phenomenological enquiry and sensuous interest. It presents, through the imprinted imago of presence, the opportunity to gaze, even to stare – objectively, voyeuristically, elegiacally, scopophiliacally, wonderingly or pityingly – and to engage, albeit briefly, with another’s and hence one’s own condition.

The images are realised through nineteenth-century photographic processes, including photogravure, platinum, cyanotype and carbon-transfer contact-printing techniques. The materiality and tactility of the prints complement the skin textures and ‘presence’ of the subjects.

Early photographic processes offer many opportunities for creativity and interpretative reading. Each process characteristically facilitates or inhibits possibilities for surface texture and relief, image density, tonal range, colour and brightness; they have, in short, their specific feel when performed as works on paper. The prints aim to depict the humanity and scale of presence of subjects who, with dignity, offer intimate and voyeuristic access to their embodied selves. The works seek to heighten the haptic of surface, texture and dimensionality, to provide space for narrative awareness of the presence of older subjects, complementing their explicit complicity and gift of accessibility.

Richard Hamilton’s Typo-Topography of Marcel Duchamp’s Large Glass Revisited

The Journal article in the March 2016 edition of Print Quarterly Revisiting Richard Hamilton’s Typo-Topography of Marcel Duchamp’s Large Glass -- extends a case study by Dr Paul Laidler in his PhD thesis and comments upon the contribution of the University as a collaborator and publisher of fine art prints.

The production of fine art prints has a longstanding relationship with the collaborative print studio, where artists work together with master printers to realize and produce printed artworks.

The collaboration between artist and print studio has predominantly been one of facilitation, where the artist is able to access specialist equipment and technical expertise with the tools, materials and operations of a particular print studio. What this involves and what the relationships are has varied between print studios and even between the master printers of a studio. This article will discuss the production of an inkjet printed edition with the artists Richard Hamilton using the collaborative print studio model within a University setting.
