Redmond, S & Verhagen, D 2017, ‘Of microbes and machines: How art and science fuse in bio-art’, CNN Style, 7 Feb

PhD exegesis

Bennett, A 2016, The Shifting Surface in Digital Photography, creative practice PhD exegesis, Deakin University
“This creative practice as research project has investigated the question: given the dematerialisation of the photographic image, to what extent can a photograph be regarded as having a surface? Framed by the contexts of photography, materiality and surface, the creative investigation employed dialogic ‘making as thinking’ methods to generate innovation solutions.”

The Article

Leach, S 2016, ‘The Ghosts in the Machines: Morbis Artis’, The Article, 5 Dec
“The damaged human body is aestheticised in Alison Bennett’s Bruise, an interactive video work in which bruised human flesh can be manipulated and moved on a screen. The viewer seemingly touching and manipulating the damaged organ, just to see how it looks, reminiscent of the Iain M Banks’ bruise artist in his SF novel Use of Weapons.”
