The Deep Field Project is a research studio exploring the intersections of contemporary art practice with fields such as experimental and theoretical science, the critical & environmental humanities and ecology. Our research, field / studio work, and graduate studies are led by internationally active contemporary artists, curators and filmmakers associated with adapting new social tools, digital methods and critical concepts to advance research methodologies and the artistic and cultural fields more widely.
Our research increasingly involves ecological practices in art with a focus on activities that create collaborative, collective, cultural or social impact. The Deep Field is a key contributor to CREAM’s collective project; Ecological Futurisms.
The research studio coordinates graduate research, some of which is funded directly by University of Westminster and Techne 2 (AHRC). We also specialise in supporting PhD research by artists whose practice is at an advanced stage and reflects or integrates with our aims and history in creating new knowledge in relation to experimental and media arts, ecology and practices that are intersectional.
