The Research Partners

The project is based on collaborations between artists and academics. The distinction is not always clear, for many of the artists have academic interests and qualifications. Nevertheless for the purpose of the current project, the research partners elected to work either from their academic study or from their artistic practice. This set of relations between artists and academics owes much to the earlier work of the Space and Place Research Collaborative (Dr Karen Till, Maynooth University), of the Mapping Spectral Traces network, and of Ómós Áite, of the National University of Ireland Galway.
