Curating Third Space: The value of art-science collaboration (2017-2020) investigated the importance of art-science in the contemporary research landscape. The project focussed on the human impact of art-science collaboration, using case-studies of major international art-science projects. These studies have provided an opportunity to understand new audiences for art, while also contributing insights to the wider context of new interdisciplinary cultural organisations that are emerging globally.
The research applied an innovative psychosocial method called the “visual matrix”, designed to enable responses in a group setting to an art object, process or event. Imaginative and emotional responses are stimulated with the matrix, which has been applied in various fields including art, health, social care and citizenship. The visual matrix is a tested methodology that allows a deeper understanding of the impact of art.
