About Making: Keep Chewing the Gum
Workshop with Jenny Dunseath as part of doing together 2023
Monday 3 April 2023
doing together is a yearly two-day making and sharing practice symposium at Locksbrook Campus, hosted by Bath Spa University’s Centre of Cultural and Creative Industries and Art Research Centre. Workshops, delivered by staff and PGR students from across the University, share practice-based research methods and a broad range of approaches to practice. doing together is proposed as a generous space to make/do/share and discuss practice with colleagues from a range of different Schools. Throughout the symposium, facilitators - alongside participants - test out ways of doing together in an effort to make their practice-based research explicit, rather than simply describe it.
Aimed at audiences with an interest in art practice, this playful and sometimes stupid session, involved multi-sensory, participatory approaches.
While focus, certainty, coherence, and singularity are commonly considered pedagogical ideals, this session explores the nature of an art practice and the relevance of distraction and uncertainty to promote flexible, multifaceted, adaptive, and associative thinking.
