Sociolegal model making 8: Pop-Up Museum of Legal Objects

This is the eight in a series of experiments (first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh) investigating how model making can be used in sociolegal research processes. As these experiments have progressed I have come to realise that my intention is to understand how we can, and why we might, make sociolegal research ‘visible and tangible’. This experiment is similar … Continue reading Sociolegal model making 8: Pop-Up Museum of Legal Objects

In pursuit of the copper ox-hide ingot

My first encounter with ox-hide ingots was on the cover of a specialist economic history text. Cyprus is home to the largest deposits of copper ore in the Mediterranean region, concentrated around the Trodoos mountains. I came face-to-face with, and became attached to, my  ox-hide ingot during an experiment in object-based brainstorming that I conducted in … Continue reading In pursuit of the copper ox-hide ingot

Sociolegal model making 6: place-holding

https://vimeo.com/199899293 This is the sixth in a series of experiments (see the first, second, third, fourth and fifth) investigating how modelling can be used in sociolegal research processes. I am a sociolegal researcher seeking to generate insights that are both theoretically informed and empirically grounded. Almost all my research includes qualitative, semi-structured interviews that are always time consuming and expensive to complete and sometimes awkward. But they are also usually extremely … Continue reading Sociolegal model making 6: place-holding

Object-based econosociolegal brainstorming

Room 72 at The British Museum I used a visit to Room 72: Ancient Cyprus at the British Museum to experiment with a spot of object-based econosociolegal brainstorming. My aim was to use the objects as prompts for rapid reflections on the econosociolegal past, present and future of Cyprus, particularly in the context of the current … Continue reading Object-based econosociolegal brainstorming

Exploring the potential of materials to ‘fire imagination’ and ‘advance conceptualisation’

Fellow MA Graphic Media Design student Andy Renmei and I were tasked with conducting an interview exploring key issues that are shaping current and future design practices. Intention We are both interested in the theme of social transformation (in relation to completely different fields: genome editing / and econosociolegal peace-building respectively). We began reading about speculative design, the … Continue reading Exploring the potential of materials to ‘fire imagination’ and ‘advance conceptualisation’
