Volume 17: Multisensory Materiality in the Art School

This special issue of Studies in Material Thinking focuses on the plurality of tacit, sensory and affective modalities circulating around the objects, practices, and meanings of art and design in that most mysterious of locations, the art school. How can we begin grasping—and theorising—heterogeneous material practices and elusive, embodied forms of knowledge that seem to exceed verbal formulation? The articles in this volume, composed by practitioners and art and design theorists, offer critical insights into the complex, hidden and iterative studio practices of student artists, designers and researchers. They help us think how new works arise from complex constellations of materials, bodies and minds in action. This issue brings to light innovative ways of mapping out somatic knowledge and embodied memory in the context of the art school.

SMT vol. 17 available online now

AUT University advises that the research journal Studies in Material Thinking is concluding with this final volume. After a decade of publishing under the direction of Editor-in-Chief, Nancy de Freitas, there is no more funding to support this pioneering initiative. Authors and researchers are advised to archive their published papers in PDF format in their own institutional research repositories since the current AUT website may not remain intact after 2019. The Editor-in-Chief would like to thank all researchers, authors, co-editors and readers who have contributed to the success of this timely project over the last decade. We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Faculty of Design and Creative Technologies, AUT University.

Best wishes to all.
