In addition, Randolph Cliff is building up a special research collection based on initial propositions and blueprints donated by visiting artists. In the Winter Semester 2009, Edinburgh College of Art shall hold a series of seminars to debate the conceptual, physical, and legal shape that future research or study collections might take. These seminars, developed in conjunction with the University of Edinburgh’s School of Arts, Culture & Environment and the Talbot Rice Gallery, will include forthcoming artists in residence at Randolph Cliff, in particular Thomas Struth, Zvi Goldstein, Joseph Grigely, and Antje Majewski. An international conference on “Future Collections” supported by the Royal Society of Edinburgh will take place in Spring 2010.

FIELDWORK is the first publication of A/S/N Mutual Press, a new imprint based on a micro-savings association established by nine graduates of Art/Space/Nature, the interdisciplinary Masters of Fine Art course directed by artist Alan Johnston at Edinburgh College of Art. Art/Space/Nature at Edinburgh College of Art is unique in that it offers postgraduate students from fine art, architecture, landscape architecture, and design the opportunity to study and engage with a wide range of sites from arctic Greenland to coastal Slovenia and urban Chicago, as well as several locations in Scotland including the islands of Orkney.

FIELDWORK gathers together a series of recent conversations with leading international artists who stayed at Randolph Cliff, plus interviews with anthropologists, landscape architects, and composers. Each interview reveals a complimentary vision of what it means to do fieldwork today, and the stimulating challenges of site-specific enquiry and interdisciplinary practice.
