Dr John Rimmer
John’s research has focused on aspects of painting methodologies in relation to situating agency within particular social frameworks and has developed out of his training in philosophy and fine art. Recent research has drawn from expanded practices in painting through the use of digital technologies, in particular exploring the intersection of painting and video. John’’s research has been framed by his interest in an increasingly digitised culture and its effects on users of new technologies. He is currently working with colleagues at different institutions on an inter-disciplinary project Books of Blood, a curating and publishing project that builds on his practice-based research interests.
