selfscapes - Published Version


SelfScapes is a new research cluster at York St John University and refers to the relationship between self and its environment. The aim of this research cluster is to investigate both the body and place as sites for interconnected experiences and how this might be mediated through a range of media. York St John University and the Forestry England staff at Dalby Forest had already established a good working relationship so we decided to base the first SelfScapes events at Dalby Forest.
Petra Young, who leads the arts programme for Forestry England at Dalby Forest, gave us the working space and support for the events.

SelfScapes was awarded internal research funding from York St John University in 2017 as a means to bring a group of staff and students together to work within a research cluster. The cluster was initiated by Dr Joanna Sperryn-Jones, Mark Adams, Sally Taylor and Dr Christina Kolaiti. The subject of SelfScapes emerged as a common theme from conversations on our individual art practices. SelfScapes focus on the relationship between self and environment seemed like an appropriate starting point for our common interests, which are embodied by an experimental approach to image making and developing ideas. In addition, the form of the event (shared making followed by discussion and an exhibition) is of common interest to us as a means of disseminating and developing artistic research.
