Wuon-Gean Ho

The printed image as repository of gesture and liminal states: using alternative perspectives and scientific techniques to read/consume and generate/create analogue prints

Wuon-Gean is studying for a PhD in ways of capturing touch and gesture in printmaking, supervised by Associate Professor Dr Tavs Jorgensen (Director of Studies), Associate Professor Dr Clare Johnson and Professor Steve Hoskins.

This research will take a quantitative and analytic approach to the auxiliary aspects of gestures involved in traditional printmaking processes, in order to preserve tacit knowledge, increase understanding of cultural heritage, and enhance training processes. The expected outcomes include novel ways of capturing and communicating complex motor tasks, with potential application to the creative industries as well as in other fields such as sports, medicine and stroke rehabilitation.
