Call for ‘Works in progress’

We are currently looking for contributions from cluster members to feature your works in progress on the Material Encounters website. It would be really helpful if you could let us know what you are working on at the moment by sending us some images and texts about your works. It may sound ambitious, but we think it is possible to create an online space where we could see what our peers are doing, much like having others working in their studios beside us!

Everything seems tentative and surreal at the moment with the pandemic, and it has definitely affected the ways we connect with people and ideas. The difficulty of accessing the practices of others, particularly tacit knowing through material engagement, is further compounded by our remote connection with other practitioners.

It would be interesting to see how works evolve through time and in tandem with others, much like a working document. We are not expecting anything perfect or even complete, but something that would keep us all engaged with our making.

You could also send us links to your social media pages. This could be your blog, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Linkedin and other social media sites you are currently using. Imagine the dynamic connections one could experience starting with a single site!

If you are interested to share, please send the relevant information to either edward.turpie@mail.bcu.ac.uk or su.ng@mail.bcu.ac.uk
