“Research Images as Art / Art Images as Research”

Cross-Disciplinary Competition/Exhibition 2016/17

The Doctoral School would like to thank everyone for entering our competition and for contributing towards what was an excellent exhibition – we've had very good feedback and certainly had fun organising the event.

I think it is a great opportunity to show a little bit of what I am studying in my PhD concerning the role of the record for the re-construction of Chilean historical villages affected by earthquakes. It is great that some of the key aspects of my research can be conveyed to the general public through one of my images, especially considering that it was selected by a multidisciplinary jury.

— Mrs Bernadette Devilat, Bartlett School of Architecture

I am very honoured and grateful to the Doctoral School for the award. This competition inspires and motivates us to search for new ways of looking at our research and showcase the beauty of it.

— Ms Daniela Lainez Del Pozo, Geography
