Art-based research is the use of an artistic process as a form of study. The workshop will begin with Ashley and Liz presenting their work and explaining their personal art-based research methods. It will also investigate new methods for generating, developing, and communicating new ideas by offering practical exercises and a group discussion. In order to participate you must register with a question you would like to research through art.

Ashley Bio:


ashley middleton (b. 1985, USA) is an independent curator and visual artist, working in a range of media that includes photography, sculpture, and installation. Her projects are an expression of her ongoing research into the unconscious, its manifestation in human behavior, and how those behaviors produce, and alter, our physical and digital worlds. Her practice contemplates the notion of the self as a microcosm of the cosmos and the evolution of social connectivity in the age of rapid technological advancement. Middleton’s work uses philosophy, science, and empirical research to address the value of the body and its symbiotic relation to nature. Her work has been exhibited and published internationally.
