Our research culture
Our researchers represent a broad range of practices as artists, designers, architects, filmmakers, photographers, historians, theorists and curators.
Their research ranges across the creative arts resulting in buildings, artworks, installations, books, articles, ceramics, exhibitions, textiles, reports, films, photographs and the moving image.
As such, they offer an understanding of art and design that has real impact in the world.
