Fovolab fovography

Fovolab studies visual perception by combining ideas and research methods from art and science.

Primarily interested in the perceptual structure of visual experience and how it can be represented, Fovolab combines knowledge and methods from art and science with the aim of advancing the understanding of visual perception in a way that neither could achieve alone.

Fovolab is based in Cardiff School of Art and Design.

Craft in the Bay: Oriel 2
CF10 4QH

Currently on display at Craft in the Bay are medals made by Second Year Artist Designer: Maker students.

The work displays the combination of traditional skills and the use of new technologies that is part of what makes this undergraduate course so unique and exciting. Bridging the gap between traditional skills and new technologies, students work in a myriad of ways, including producing work for batch production, bespoke one-off pieces or manufacture.

We see evidence of concept and craft coming together in these small hand held sculptural artefacts.

CSAD Senior Lecturer Dr Jonathan Clarkson has been interviewed by the New York Times for a recent article on a misattributed Constable masterpiece.

Following the publication of his monograph on Constable, Dr Clarkson was asked to comment on how the painter’s distinctive brushwork can be identified by his paintings: “He leaves bits of the primed canvas showing through a finished painting; he leaves these visible brush strokes; he doesn’t smooth out the tones of his colors so there’s an even gradation […] at the time people just thought this was sloppy practice, that it was because he couldn’t paint better rather than he was choosing to paint this way.”

The full article is available here.
