The Instant Journal brings together materials produced for and during a PhD by Design study and workshop day held at Leeds College of Art on May 14th 2015. This day was dedicated to exploring multiple possibilities of innovatively disseminating practice based design research. Twenty-nine participants contributed to the day with a 5 minute presentation of one instance of dissemination of their research, reflecting on what they did, what worked and what did not and why. These presentations, and the practices at their core, where the basis for our collective exploration.
The journal has been produced on May 14th 2015 as an experiment in how knowledge generated through an event can be disseminated instantly – in a form that allows for unpolished and fresh thoughts to be circulated.
The Journals pages consist of each participants biography, their research topic and a question that they were looking to explore on the day. This is followed by a page where they had one hour at the end of the day to document a response to this original question. This was both an interesting and exciting process, depicted below.
