Espresso Self 2014 is a Faculty of Education and Arts exhibition that provides the faculty's staff with an opportunity to showcase their creative outputs. For some staff members the work exhibited is an extension of their professional practice, and for others it is a glimpse of their other self – the artist within.
The staff are drawn from many creative disciplines, and while the teaching requirements takes up much of their time, they continue to produce as researchers and artists. The exhibition will run at Spectrum Project Space from Thursday, 11 to Friday, 19 September 2014.
The opening of Espresso Self will launch Research Week. Join in the celebrations on Monday, 15 September from 5.30pm to 6.30pm in Spectrum Gallery, Mount Lawley Campus.
Visualising Research allows designers to seek new and effective ways of displaying information that makes infographics, comics, maps, series of photographs or 3D models of data more comprehensible and attractive. This initiative also offers themed competitions and a chance to show visual research galleries at ECU research events.
"The visualising research initiative is rapidly evolving beyond its initial scope of helping researchers from across ECU to uncover new, visual ways of presenting their research findings. Now researchers and design students are partnering to develop ways to frame research questions, and even looking beyond visuals towards better understanding the research audience. From the design point of view, the opportunity for the students to work with real clients, who aren’t the typical start-up company assumed to be the standard design client, has been invaluable."
Dr Stuart Medley, Unit Coordinator, School of Communications and Arts
