Mr Volker Eichelmann

School: School of Art and Architecture
Position: Principal Lecturer


In the production of artworks I investigate how histories and bodies of knowledge are ordered through the means of their generation and classification and how proposed modes of re-presentation generate new models of agency and interaction.

Appropriating existing visual and textual records from historical and scientific archives I employ methods of detournement to re-present material as new and propositional. The process and the presentation innovatively conflate the technologies of production, fabrication and reproduction.
