Lucy Coggle

I am preoccupied by two dominant metaphors around digital art, shimmering and flatness. I want to flesh out the implications of the terminology, what it tells us about art in wider digital context and the relationship between the viewer, artist and the art in a terrain of shimmering flatness.


Fearghus Roulston

My research is an interdisciplinary examination of the Belfast punk scene in the late 1970s. Mainly applying an oral history methodology, I intend to use this subculture to explore issues of belonging, sectarianism, spatial division and resistance in Northern Ireland during the Troubles. The project will bring together elements of sociology, conflict geography and cultural memory theory, as well as more traditional historical analysis.

It is no coincidence that A.S. Byatt begins her ‘Quartet’ of novels in 1953, the year when Crick and Watson discovered the double-helix structure of DNA. For a series of books that was intended to be ‘about the mind-body problem’ there could not be a more provocative image to set the tone than this twisted-ladder of encoded molecules, which connects all living things to the dynamic processes of the material world (Byatt, 2005, p. 295).
