(Practice as Research)
Central to Davina’s practice based research is the use of narrative and the metaphorical to reveal multiple layers of meaning and how they work in relation to what continues to exist, and what is missing in the physical world.
The practice consists of :
The creation of objects, prints, films, installations that relate both to personal and collaborative narratives of grief, loss, pain and embodiment.
Conversation and metalogue (following Bateson1973:2000).
The creation of ritual/performance in site specific locations. Documentation of these temporal experiences.
Performative explorations of practice as research, narrative inquiry, autoethnography as conference papers.
