Profile Summary
Lawrence George Giles is programme leader: MA Graphic Design and Academic Co-ordinator for the Graphic design subject area. His research activities engage with the field of photographic narrative and the utilisation of the photograph as an aide memorie. Specific current research interests here have focused upon the panoramic format as a medium to extend both physical and temporal space as a means to investigate our relationship with time, memory and place. Additional investigations have centred on issues relating to how digital art and media operate within specific artforms and further exploration of how these media, once combined can be exploited and developed within a digital platform, with more recent enquiries revolving around the potential benefits that lenticular and emerging 360 degree video technologies possess with regard to the extending of time within a seamless panoramic format. He holds a postgraduate degree in Communication Design and an undergraduate degree in Photography and Imaging from Manchester Metropolitan University. Lawrence has been successful in gaining support from a wide variety of sources including: The AHRB, Arts Council England, and Regional Lottery Funding. In addition Lawrence is a Director of Redeye, the Northwest England Photography Network.
