Jennifer R. Wicks research based practice engages with the academic concepts around phenomenology and the intersections between the mediums of film and sculpture. She is interested in the relationship between sound and image and how sensory perception underpins our understanding of our environment and how this in turn affects memory and the inextricable link between memory and landscape. Also engaged with the critical effect of shifting film from its traditionally conceived (temporal) image-producing function to its (spatial) sculptural possibilities (and vice versa) and used in new ways and given new meaning. Informed by the concept of liminality and the liminal state between experience and memory, she explores this psychological transformation as a narrative process investigating the subjective nature of memory, history and time.
Jennifer R. Wicks lives and works in Glasgow. She also works collaboratively with artist Marion Ferguson on a research project exploring landscape and memory.
