Repair: work and objects (PhD project)
This project aims to define repair as a bridge between creativity and practicality, as crossing boundaries and as a methodology with which to actively explore sustainability, identity and community.
Exploring the multidimensional area of repair through (re)making, investigating materials, joining methods and object narratives, Bridget is making and collecting a series of objects, techniques and experiences as part of her AHRC funded PhD studies. Rooted in ideas of design activism, environmentally and socially conscious and iterative, she aims to investigate the potential for visible repair as part of an expanded studio practice.
As a practice based researcher, she also continues the redefining of assumed aesthetics of the recycled and examining the impact of personal actions in the greater scheme of sustainability.
