self-interview

Part of the game of any research process is finding ways to test your one’s own thinking, understanding, biases1 and assumptions. The dancer Chrysa Parkinson posted a self-interview in 2011 as (I suspect) a way to develop and share her understanding:

It’s playful, lucid and direct, and such a useful example of a way for artists to interrupt their thinking or to draw a line under a period of practice or research.

Tip of the hat to my friend and colleague Scott deLahunta for sending me the video.

multimedia phd case studies

The British Library placement student Coral Manton has produced a series of case studies of PhD students working with and in multimedia PhDs:

[The students] discuss the artefacts and content they’re producing and the challenges they’ve encountered around long-term archiving, managing rights and permissions, seeking advice from libraries, and ensuring access for future researchers to allow them to build on the research.

Here’s the link:

Clearly, how non-traditional research is able to be archived and accessed continues to be a key question for institutions and individuals.
