AA2A Artist

Pamela Schilderman

Year:
2018 - 19
Project summary:

The AA2A scheme at De Montfort University is an unrivalled opportunity for me to benefit from a dynamic interdisciplinary environment with an ethos for knowledge exchange. Without access to its facilities I would not be able to realise an innovative project which is pivotal to my next body of work on identity.

 

This project will challenge the traditional self-portrait and what it signifies by using forensic identifiers in order to present an alternative visual perspective of the self through the lens of criminological science.

 

I wish to transform bodily elements that are often perceived as clinical or repellent

into miniature works of beauty imbued with a treasured, unique and emotional value. In order to achieve this, I need to master different techniques in glass, printmaking and jewellery.

 

I am excited at the prospect of interacting with students and relish the opportunity to share my experiences of being a self-employed artist. I enjoy participating in group sessions/Q&A/talks which I believe to be a stimulating learning experience.

 

By using the time/space and facilities provided by this program I intend to create art works that will pave the way for collaboration with scientists; forging my entry into the biomedical field.
