AD7201 Research methods & contemporary practice

This site documents and forms part of the body of work submitted by Sophie Starkey in completion of Module AD 7201 of the MA Fine Art course at the University of Gloucestershire.

My studio practice, while diverse, is characterised by the overall pursuit of Flow. I have identified common traits in this pursuit and, reflecting others’ practices, am using this knowledge together with personal archival data to understand Flow more deeply.

I agree with others that the process of understanding is of value in itself. I accept the opinion that it is probably a never ending search but it is proving to be a rich seam of inspiration. I am now using this knowledge to create work that speaks of me – a new self portrait reflecting the immersive digital culture we now live in.
