Stevenson, Sara. Light from the Dark Room. Edinburgh, National Galleries of Scotland, 1995. 66-67.“The archaeological examination of the present – an examination that selects the minor objects made by our civilization and considers them in isolation – may lead us into new fields of beauty and exploration, in abstraction of work as that by Ken Reynolds and Vaughan Judge. The important proposal looked at here is that of collaboration and connections made through broad and open approaches – the cross cultural possibilities that can find new paths to invention: the way photography is knitted into intelligent ideas can breed new visual ideas and concepts.” Sara Stevenson
Extracts from essay by Dr. Tom Normand: Scottish Photography: A History As an educator: “Vaughan Judge, in particular has been responsible for encouraging a radical program of photographic art from students at Glasgow School of Art” (p. 155-156) As an artist: “In addition to this, Vaughan Judge’s practice has developed into one of the more fascinating neo-conceptual forms of the contemporary period”. (p. 155-156)
Undergraduate Research in Art, A Guide for StudentsUndergraduate Research in Art: A Guide for Students supplies tools for scaffolding research skills, with examples of undergraduate research activities and case studies on projects in the various areas of the study of art―from art history, art education, and fine art therapy, to studio art, graphic design, and digital media. Although art degree programs don’t always call it research, many undergraduate activities in art have components that could be combined into comprehensive projects.The book begins with an overview chapter, followed by seven chapters on research skills, including literature reviews, choosing topics, formulating questions, citing sources, disseminating results, and working with data and human subjects. A wide variety of subdisciplines follow in Chapters 9 through 18, with sample project ideas from each, as well as undergraduate research conference abstracts. The final chapter is an annotated guide to online resources that students can access and readily operate. Each chapter opens with inspiring quotations, and wraps up with applicable discussion questions. Professors and students can use Undergraduate Research in Art as a text or a reference book.
