Writing, Curating and Lecturing on Visual Arts, Public Space and Architecture

Foundations of Artistic Research

Series of talks and seminars focusing on artistic and design research from  artist/designer-researchers for students of the Design and Crafts MA programme. The lectures present projects and processes, and on how to do research via practice. Each lecture is followed by a related workshop led by the invited speakers – Julia Lohmann, Danielle Wilde, Jüri Kermik and Karolina Jakaite.

My role in this class was to select the speakers, moderate their talks and help to conduct the workshops (in Julia Lohmann's and Danielle Wilde's case via Zoom). Furthermore, the four meetings were introduced by an inaugural seminar/workshop and finished with a conclusive seminar in which we looked back at the four meetings. 


Danielle Wilde is an Associate Professor of Embodied Design at the University of Southern Denmark, Kolding (SDU). Her research aims to understand how designing with, for and through the full sensorial richness of the human body might transform how design and living unfold in a more-than-human world, positing human embodiment, the climate crisis and the 6th mass extinction as interdependent material issues. You can find more about her design practice from here: http://www.daniellewilde.com/ See also: https://www.artun.ee/en/danielle-wilde-appointed-as-a-visiting-professor-of-eka-doctoral-school/

German-born designer and researcher Julia Lohmann investigates and critiques the ethical and material value systems underpinning our relationship with flora and fauna. She is Professor of Contemporary Design at Aalto University, Finland, and directs her eponymous Helsinki-based design practice. Julia studied at the Royal College of Art, where she has also taught and completed an AHRC-funded collaborative PhD scholarship between the RCA and the Victoria & Albert Museum. As designer in residence at the V&A in 2013, she established the Department of Seaweed, a transdisciplinary community of practice exploring the marine organisms' potential as a design material. Julia Lohmann’s work is part of major public and private collections worldwide and has received awards, bursaries and support from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, the British Council, Jerwood Contemporary Makers, D&AD, Stanley Picker Gallery, the Arts Foundation, Wellcome Trust and Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum.

Laura Hobson I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.
