UCLIC Research Seminar Series
In this talk, I will discuss my experiences as a researcher and documentary-maker in various contexts. I will focus on projects I have been involved in that combine documentary and research in interesting ways, including my current research, which seeks to develop new ways of understanding design research through a multifaceted documentary project. I will frame the discussion around three approaches to documentary research: research into documentary (i.e. learning about documentary); research for documentary (i.e. developing tools, systems and processes to enable, support and advance documentary) and research through documentary (i.e. creating new knowledge through the processes of making documentaries).

I am a documentary maker, designer, technologist and researcher, specialising in documentary interaction and participation. I am based at Lancaster University, where I am currently developing a research through documentary project about design research, as part of Design Research Works http://designresearch.works. I have previously held positions at UWE Bristol Digital Cultures Research Centre, MIT OpenDoc Lab, Northumbria University NORTH Lab, and Newcastle University Open Lab // http://dpgreen.co.uk
