Documentation of the Research Process

The core method of research for this project was my artist practice of bodhrán playing. Daily private practice sessions of embodied bodhrán research were documented in my handwritten journal, and with short video clips. These clips were compiled into two long videos (seen below), indexed by clip number and date, to produce a total of over six hours of footage. This footage is not intended to be viewed in its entirety, but it is referred to elsewhere on this website. A visual summary of my embodied research is given by the first video here; six hours of footage compressed into twenty seconds.


My handwritten journal was provided to the examiners at my performance.
