Information about the interaction and discussion structure of the Visual Research Conference
The Visual Research Conference is similar to a panel discussion or open roundtable with ALL participants (including the “audience”) potentially contributing in each presentation. Presenters come with works-in-progress, ready to dialogue, not to “read a paper” or “show a film” with a question or two at the end. Visual Research Conference presentations feature much interaction and feedback from an actively participating audience – working to maximize the productive possibilities of being co-present with each other.

Abstract for Visual Methods and Interdisciplinary Practice, from an Artist’s Perspective
This presentation will consider an Internet-based collection project, an artist using ethnographic research methods borrowed from anthropology, and forms of digital media used in documenting interdisciplinary visual research. I contend that the artist's perspective-- concerned with individual experience-- can also be utilized in the development of interdisciplinary theories drawing from the breadth of current art and from anthropology.
