8th February – Talk by Timothy CarsonLecturer in Jewellery and Programme Leader BA Jewellery.
Tim Carson produces badges and other works that explore questions surrounding authorship in conjunction with notions of misdirection and ‘false’ narratives. And if you were to deconstruct that work to identify the separate ingredients you’d find a bit of Punk, a smear of Dada, some Goons, a nod to Situationism, Jean Tinguely lurking, the dilapidated farm machinery of his youth and jokes that very much vary in quality.

Having graduated from the Royal College of Arts, (Jewellery) and from London Metropolitan University (Psychology), Mah Rana’s work separates into distinct strands of research to include public participation, performance, arts and heath, that have several cross-over points; framed by a relational arts practice approach.
Mah Rana has worked closely with audiences through public participatory interventions. Using Jewellery is LifeTM as an umbrella title for work that is about the close relationship between people and jewellery.
