My current research focus on curatorial design forms part of an ongoing interdisciplinary project negotiating the impact of digital technologies on curatorial practices and the implications of virtuality on the art of exhibition. I recently completed my PhD thesis on this topic: ‘Without Walls: Virtuality and the Art of Exhibition’ investigates how the intersection of new technologies with exhibition space offers new possibilities for aesthetic experience. Ideas outlined in the critical writings establishing the concept of the multimedial museum are translated through practice-based research focused on the curatorial design of a series of original exhibitions.I have published in relation to these research topics in various peer-reviewed journals and presented at numerous refereed conferences, both nationally and internationally.
