Joan of Art : An Art School Ghost

Interventions that explore the presence of the ‘artschool ghost’ Joan Charnley, an alumna inspired by an arts education that shaped her life. The interventions allow visitors to get to know Joan through her haunted presence and explore research around potential for the design of paranormal phenomena (in direct response to the conference paper ‘Para-design: Engaging the Anomalous’). As visitors explore the levels of the gallery space they will encounter Joan through a series of sonic, sensory and apparitional experiences.

Work currently in development for an exhibition alongside the IASDR conference in Manchester in September 2019, updates to follow soon !
