Rosamund Davies has a background of professional practice in the film and television industries. Her current research interests focus on cross art-form practice in the context of media convergence and new media platforms and business models in the creative industries. Her recent visual media work explores the intersection between narrative and archive as cultural forms.
Co-investigator on Patina (Personal Architectonics Through INteractions with Artefacts), a multi-disciplinary project funded by EPSRC/AHRC, which aims to revolutionise the design of technologies for supporting research. The project is led by the University of Bristol in collaboration with the universities of Brighton, Greenwich, Newcastle, Southampton and Swansea. These technologies will provide the means to capture, record, and replay the researcher's activities and support intuitive archiving, sharing and publication of interactions with research objects. The design of the technologies will draw on theoretical frameworks of space developed from studies of research spaces as diverse as libraries, museums, homes and archaeological fieldwork sites.
