Abstract

ScreenWork was established by Jon Dovey, University of Bristol, through developing discussions at AVPhD (An AHRC-funded network instigated by Goldsmiths and Westminster University) and other practice-based research symposia. It is a blind peer-reviewed publication of practice-based audio-visual research, launched at the 3rd Journal of Media Practice (JMP) Symposium: ‘Making the Case: contextualising and documenting media practice as research', University of Bristol, 15th June 2007 at which Bendon also presented a related paper. Egg & Spoon (2005), a DV loop, was selected for the first edition. It is one outcome from a period of research on encountering narrative or psychological stasis in moving-image practice. Bendon focuses on the work's form to draw attention to the idea (perversion) of representations of stasis within durational work, and how non-linear presentations can be explored as appropriate modes of reception. This project was informed by theoretical and contextual considerations (including Deleuze's work on stillness and movement, Adorno and Horkheimer's critique on viewing film, and Ivone Margulies' reflections on the films of Chantal Akerman). Bendon expands on these in A Place For Ambiguity - Articulating Practice As Research (2005) JMP 6(3) 157-165. This essay was developed from a paper presented at Articulating Media Practice As Research, South Bank University (17th June 2005). In both paper and subsequent essay, Bendon articulates and reflects on the types of understanding and knowledge employed as a creative practitioner, using Egg & Spoon to reflect on the role that creative process plays in research culture, exploring the significance of process in developing research outcomes through performative and spatial investigations. It is in the context of an integrated theory/practice model of research that the work was submitted to ScreenWork. The DVD is distributed with Journal of Media Practice 8(2) 2007 ISSN14682753.
