Research Project: Aesthetic complexity: Practice and perception in art and design
"The aim of my research was to measure the complexity of 2D images including: painting, drawing, graphics, and woven and printed textiles. The research investigates whether the complexity of images has anything to do with judgements of artistic quality. One of the main findings was that the perception of value in a work of art increased with the complexity of the images.
"The School of Art & Design has excellent facilities, specifically the large-format scanners and graphics software.
"I've become a Research Fellow for the University. This is a new career path for post-doctoral research and it is a way of assisting academics with their research. My longer term goal is to become a lecturer at the University, whilst continuing my own research."
