Responding to/In Conversation with:
Mott and Roberts (supported by Garrett and Hawkins) “observation of the need for a ‘sustained critical treatment of the range of visual images produced by urban explorers’” (Motts and Roberts 2013, 4).
Garrett and Hawkins’ statement that “[f]or the potential production of a politics of urban exploration, we urge an examination of both the representational and the affective forces of these images” (Garrett and Hawkins 2013, 12-13).
DeSilvey and Edensor’s suggestion that academic research into urban ruins thus far “opens up scope for non-representational investigations of ruins, which, by drawing on current research into embodied geographies, might moderate the overriding focus on the visual in ruin scholarship and focus attention on the ways in which the material qualities of runs afford particular sensual and affective experiences” (DeSilvey and Edensor, 2012, 480)
FOCUS: subject-body/place relations and the “imaginative spaces” opened up/the potential for reframing body-environment relationships through their artistic images
With particular focus on:
- their “deployment of the (often nude) female form” as an artist device that frames body-subject/place relations)
- “affective intensities” of their images
- application of non-representational/more-than-representational theories
