Featured Practitioner: Amie Rai
Amie Rai is PhD researcher in the Digital Media Arts department at University of Surrey. She holds a MA in Sound and Image (2015), MA in Art History (2008) and a BA in Fine Art (2004). Her practice-based research, titled ‘Making Reading Fleshy’ looks into the history of the written word and how writing changed modes of communication, thinking and our relationship to knowledge and storytelling. In particular, it considers the changes that occurred with the mass production of the written word in book form that came about with the invention of the printing press, as well as the development thereafter to screen-based information in the digital age. Looking at oral tradition as a starting point, the research explores how reading can become more fleshy, reintegrating the body back into the process of reading.
Amie will be sharing her practice along with nine other practitioners at the first installment of Work Processing on December 1st. Tickets can be purchased via eventbrite.
