art | education


Studio is a place for thinking and making sense of stuff: a place of study. Studio is playing with ideas, materials, words, and movement. My studio is times of wondering and wandering in playful lands of artistic explorations with people of all ages. Here's my travel log.


#storynotgadget | Artmaking, Materials, and Ownership | USQ Salon Series 2017

In July and August 2017 I was welcomed by the Digital Life team at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) in Toowoomba, Australia.  Among other things, I was invited to be a guest speaker at their Salon Series - a monthly live-streamed lecture by a visiting scholar.

This is a very interesting series, as it takes the idea of (digital) life in a very broad sense and welcomes different perspectives on a variety of issues. The setting in itself is interesting as well: each lecture is recorded in a TV studio on campus, with both a live audience and direct remain online.

I was thrilled to have a diverse audience of people from different fields - from educational technology to business studies and librarianship - andthe interesting follow-up discussions made clear how we are all just in the business of figuring things out - one of the points that was key to my talk. As it turns out, #storynotgadget seems to be a very pertinent way of thinking about assessment in a business degree…

As with all USQ Salons, my guest lecture is available online on their website. Or watch it right here!
