Paramodic Pty Ltd

In 2014 - 2015, I worked closely with Dr. Ruth Mirams from Paramedic Pty. Ltd. who has a diverse background and knowledge across the sciences, social and inter-cultural research. 

In our discussions we spoke of key areas of convergent interest including:

  • Liminality - The concept of liminality was first developed in the early 20th century by anthropologist Arnold van Gennep - read more 
  • Consilience - In science and history, consilience (also convergence of evidence or concordance of evidence) refers to the principle that evidence from independent, unrelated sources can "converge" to strong conclusions - read more
  • Relational Art - Relational art or relational aesthetics is a mode or tendency in fine art practice originally observed and highlighted by French art critic Nicolas Bourriaud - read more

We also expressed our respective positions on the ethical implications of wearable technologies including that of Google Glass - read the discussion paper

During this time we created a range of visual expressions that synthesise our collaboration.
