Abstract: Shot over three years in a university Fine Art department, this film represents the generic spaces and facilities once seen in art schools worldwide. Using the camera and editing process as a research tool this work prompted a deeper investigation into the context and climate for art pedagogy including significant new commissions 'Art School, Kingston' for Kingston University and 'Workshop' for the Tate Modern.
