Salt-Water-Art-Science is a practice-led research project in which art making and writing are equal partners. The thesis is made up of an installation and a paper. The installation is comprised of many elements, which operate as a total system.
The installation Salt-Water-Art-Science will be exhibited for one week at the VCA studios, starting on the 6th December 2010. Contained within the paper and on the accompanied DVD are images of the components, which constitute the installation. I have chosen to separate this work into is elements. By discussing each element I can assist the reader in understanding the complexity of the installation, how each part relates to the other and the final presentation.
The paper provides an insight into my research, focused on Salt-Water-Art-Science. It explains in detail what has arisen through the combination of both writing and art production. The paper is a reflective account and critical analysis of my practice within which my installation is situated.
The meanings that surface from the research are compiled in four sections: the Historical Influences, the Repercussions/Problems, Artists that bridge the Discipline’s and the final installation, Salt-Water-Art-Science.
