Convenor: Dr Paul Uhlmann
“…Imagination is always considered to be the faculty of forming images. But it is rather the faculty of deforming the images offered by perception, of freeing ourselves from the immediate images; it is especially the faculty of changing images. If there is not a changing of images, an unexpected union of images, there is no imagination, no imaginative action.”
Gaston Bachelard, On Poetic Imagination and Reverie
This intense one-day symposium will investigate Bachelard’s notion of forming and deforming images of the imagination in relation to the creative process. We are interested in how images come into being. What is their ontology? How do they change and adapt? How do such images arrive as words or as visual images in art and everyday life? How might such a process be of value to human existence?
At the close of the day please join us to attend the first solo exhibition held in Australia of work by Professor Paul Coldwell Small Traces. This event will be opened by Professor Clive Barstow Dean School of Arts and Humanities ECU. Venue: Gallery 25.
Open: Monday 27th March 2017. 5.00-7pm
