Abstract

The entire document brings together materials produced for and during a PhD by Design-study and workshop day held at Leeds College of Art on May 14th 2015. This day was-dedicated to exploring multiple possibilities of innovatively disseminating practice based design research. This particular presentation is concerns the role of writing as part of a visual practice. I believe words are-powerful beyond measure, that no language is free from agenda (or gender, for that matter) and that writing is every bit as much an art as any of the visual arts. Like the visual arts, I think it is both incremental and editable and also inspired, inspiring and occasionally heavenly. I try to work by discourse, and by making and by engaging on a very real level with words, text, language and people. This presentation asks how do we How do we make the complex accessible without losing its gift of difficulty. Difficulty as in the acceptance that there is no single truth or privileged knowledge but instead a rhizomic interplay that demands the asking of new questions, or the asking of old questions differently.
