MMU’s Manchester School of Art explores the role of language and art in communication as three creative practitioners come together to discuss the way we use words and images to understand and describe the world around us. Elizabeth Kealy-Morris, Senior Lecturer in Graphic Design Theory & Practice, explores how the handmade artefact supports the representation of embodied knowledge of place, referencing her own experience of emigration to Manchester from the US. David Bramston, Principal Lecturer at University of Lincoln’s School of Art & Design, looks into the ways observations, sounds and tactile sensations can trigger a story, while composer and performer Mark Pilkington discusses his fusion of both sound and image to produce visual music that allows language to appear in perceptual space.
