This practice-based research project centres on the Cornish landscape. Its interpretation is encouraged through participatory arts-based strategies that connect experimental filmmaking to social research, favouring visual and material approaches. The project takes on three phases in its methodology: the first phase involves fieldwork by participants which is then interpreted
by a second group of participants. From here, visual artefacts such as photographs and drawings are collated and reinterpreted by the researcher into a non-fiction film, alongside 16mm film footage depicting the landscape. Those images act as material objects of engagement, where a connection between creator and landscape is evidenced through the materiality of the images themselves and the film grain.
Navigating the arts and social sciences, my research aims to be socially engaged, examining the tools that inform or help produce knowledge and the visual methods that can be employed to record this information. It joins up with disciplines that examine people and place, such as cultural geography, visual ethnography and art. Throughout the project, I advocate for democratic and emergent knowledge that can be more easily found between bounded disciplines, slow artistic processes and multi-sensory approaches. Following the recent “material turn” in the humanities and social sciences, material methods can locate the visual research objects as knowledge generators, transferring the status of the participant from “subject” to “co- creator”. Here, visual methods and their objects can produce “material and multi-sensory ways of knowing” (Woodward 2020: 71), to be made visible by the final film as visualised generative knowledge and a research document in motion.
L'eix generador d’aquest projecte parteix de la necessitat de visualitzar com el propi cos es veu condicionat per el vestir. Analitzant com el vestir actua a mode de motlle sobre la pell i indagant amb aquest condicionament que porta al cos a l’adaptació. En aquesta investigació es desenvolupen diferents pràctiques que inclouen la fotografia, el disseny i la generació de textos reflexius.
Aquestes pràctiques es presenten com artefactes que son accesibles a través de la plataforma del Research Catalogue, en el context d'una investigació a través de l'art i el disseny. Es genera així una investigació que aposta per l’experiència estètica i no per una explicació discursiva, posant al servei del subjecte observador una aproximació al cos vestit desde el reconeixement.
Curated by Antonio Cataldo and Adrià Julià. Organised by Fotogalleriet, Oslo and KMD, University of Bergen. Throughout this three-day event, Adrià Julià's students at the University of Bergen will actively partake and lead discussions
Photo-based books and self-publishing are a vital emancipatory motor of discussion bringing communities across space and time together. The intent of this conference is manifold; firstly it aims to look at the historical structures for production that enable a multiplicity of voices to speak from their subjective positions. Secondly, addressing the current modalities that give contemporary practitioners, designers and publishers advantages and limitations within the field. Thirdly it addresses the future of photo-based publications through grant systems.
To rethink the current moment which is challenging existing structures and demanding systemic change, this seminar represents a desire to rethink the Nordic Photobook Award. Initially, Fotogalleriet ran the award from 2012–18 in order to accompany upcoming voices within the field by co-producing photobooks with chosen candidates.
The seminar's ultimate goal is to evaluate relevant structures of support providing the possibility to continuously provoke theoretical and practical change.

Aqui voy a poner mis notas y trabajos de la clase de lenguajes multimodales, es mi primera vez haciendo algo de este tipo asi que solo espero que salga bien y se vea bastante lindo y ordenado, o no lo podre entender.
“Systems Theory, Psychology, and Social Media” is an Erasmus course offered by the Department of Psychology at Panteion University, Athens, Greece. In this course, Erasmus students co-create a unique and wonderful multi-cultural mosaic, ‘the difference that makes the difference.’ In addition to lecturing, participants are engaged in intensive group work during the weekly face-to-face meetings. Between the face-to-face meetings, participants create blog reflections, narratives, and multimodal artifacts about their in-class lived experience regarding the impact social technologies and artificial intelligence have on living systems. Backed up by the technological infrastructure, a network of interconnected personal blogs, students develop a reflective group ecology of practice. The whole project is informed by complex systems’ epistemology. This virtual research exposition demonstrates the overall process in a non-linear and multimodal way. Implications for rhizomatic learning theory and education are discussed.
The research of March-August 2020 approaches environment and society as constantly in-formation, while one is opening one’s eyes upon them, always a participant of them.
The research was led by:
-rigorous practice of observing, adapting and dancing ‘out in the open’.
Seeking to uncover the dance that has the sizzling, restless feeling, the butterflies in the stomach. Dance that would primordially reveal connections between elements and in such way uncover the possibilities of experiencing what they are. Polyrhythms, joining consonant and dissonant were there as the access points.
-reading Tim Ingold and diving into the understanding of the world that is worldling, that is changing as the weather does.
-reading Contact Quarterly Contact Improvisation Source book, perceiving these meetings of letters as a platform that encourages to think around the power and various facets of contact; that inspires to build by staying in dialogue.
-weaving webs of sharing one’s doings with other artists - staying in dialogue in the form of letters and calls. With: mentor of the research Stephen Batts and the very inspiring colleagues Christine Quoiraud, Rūta Junevičiūtė, Hanna Kritten Tangsoo, Magdalena Meindl, Lyllie Rouvière, Forough Fami, Iivy Meltaus and others. Last to mention the exchange that happened without my prior understanding with Giedrė Šmitienė who at that time was researching relations through the letters of poet Janina Degutytė.
