This article offers a theory and methodology for understanding and interpreting collaborations that involve visualization technologies. The collaboration discussed here is technically a geovisualization—an immersive, digital “fulldome” film of Hurricane Katrina developed by the Advanced Visualization Laboratory (AVL) at the University of Illinois a...

This article uses two artistic case studies, Bird Yarns (a knitting collective engaging questions of climate change) and SLOW Cleanup (an artist-driven environmental remediation project) to examine the “work” art can do with respect to socioecological transformations. We consider these cases in the context of geography's recent interest in “active...

We're in North Queensferry, a quiet little town near Edinburgh, looking up from the parking lot at the northern tower foundation holding the gorgeous steel monstrosity aloft. Our mission tonight is to climb the bridge, crossing it from north to south, over the three towers and the Firth of Forth. The weather doesn't look promising, but we've driven...
Article
This paper offers an auto-ethnographic account of Midas, an immersive bio-media installation created by artist Paul Thomas. The experiences of the installation provide a stepping-off point for a discussion of the corporeal geographies and the nano-imaginaries that the work develops. Understanding the senses as a principle means whereby the body min...
Article
Over the past two decades, geographers’ attentions to the ‘visual’ arts have broadened considerably. From a tightly focused study of 18th- and 19th-century landscape paintings this engagement now encompasses: a temporal reorientation towards 20th-century art practices; an opening out of concerns beyond the thematic frame of landscape; the embrace o...

Thomas N. J., Harvey D. C. and Hawkins H. Crafting the region: creative industries and practices of regional space, Regional Studies. This paper draws on an analysis of craft-based networks in South West Britain to inform one's understandings of regional space; around thinking territorially and thinking topologically. It considers how the contempor...
Article
This paper develops an ethnographic study of a small rural based ‘creative cluster’, called Krowji, situated in the town of Redruth in West Cornwall, UK. The dominant geographies of creative industries research and policy in recent years have an acknowledged urban bias together with a focus on narratives of agglomeration. This paper sits alongside...
Article
U-n-f-o-l-d is a touring exhibition that showcases the work of 25 artists who, alongside other creative practitioners, scientists and communicators, have participated in expeditions organized by Cape Farewell to engage with landscapes considered particularly "fragile" in the face of global climate change. Traveling to the high Arctic in 2007 and 20...
Article
  A new field of “public geographies” is taking shape (Fuller 2008) in geography's mainstream journals. While much is “traditional”, with intellectuals disseminating academic research via non- academic outlets (Castree 2006; Mitchell 2008; Oslender 2007), less visible is the “organic” work and its “more involved intellectualizing, pursued through w...

A touring exhibition shows the value of the Swiss 'artists-in-labs' programme, find Deborah Dixon, Harriet Hawkins and Mrill Ingram
Article
Changes in government and governmentality in the UK have resulted in what has been termed a ‘regional renaissance’ over the last decade. This has led to an increase in the number of offices, institutions, and agencies operating with a regional remit that is based upon a notion of fixed territorial containers. One sector that has increasingly been b...
Article
This paper analyses the photographs and installations of artist Richard Wentworth in order to examine his urban imagination and the cultural politics of rubbish that underlie it. In doing so this paper contributes more broadly to understandings of rubbish and material culture, and to geography's attention to artistic understandings and inhabitation...
Article
Walking up Exhibition Road, London, in March 2005, I trace the path of many of the millions of visitors to the Great Exhibition of 1851. I walk past the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum, and, eventually, the Royal Geographical Society. Leaving the museum complexes of South Kensington behind me, I reach the...
Article
The creative industries comprise one of the fastest growing sectors of the UK economy. This article introduces the geographies of these industries in the context of recent government policy that regards the sector as a catalyst for economic, social and cultural regeneration. It then focuses on one region, the South West, and one sub-sector, the dig...
Article
In the mid 1980s Cosgrove described a geography based on the ‘Argument of the Eye’. Since then geography, like the humanities more broadly, has seen the decline of vision’s hegemony with embodied accounts of vision taking the place of the detached Cartesian observer. In this article I consider what the geographer’s argument of the eye looks like to...
