Launch event - Mon 4th April, 7pm - 9pm

This exhibition is a selection of work by Säde Foley, now in her final year of Drawing & Painting at Edinburgh College of Art. The show consists of works in mixed media created during her degree, revisited and brought together for the first time. Based on a variety of sources rooted in the natural world (from cow parsley to icebergs) the pieces convey running themes of transience, water in its different forms, timelessness and etherealness which are at the core of the artist's inspiration.

Recycled resources and learning communities - lecture on Wed 6 April, 4.30pm

Recycled resources and learning communities
Professor John Lee, University of Edinburgh
Wednesday 6 April 2011, 4.30-5.30pm
Hunter lecture theatre (O17), Hunter Building

Alignment, convention, dialogue, the emergence of symbols, communities and vicarious learning form a complex knot of interconnected issues that, if we can untangle them, may shed light on much that is of interest in learning for creative practice. This talk will look at some of the strands of research that are implicated, and some previous experience with attempts to recycle captured learning experiences into a community resource. Why should we expect this to work, and will it work differently in different areas of learning?

John Lee is Professor of Digital Media in the University of Edinburgh. He works between the Schools of Arts, Culture and Environment, and Informatics.

In the former he directs the MSc programme in Design and Digital Media; in the latter he works on human communication, cognition and learning, with long-standing involvement in directing the Human Communication Research Centre, the Edinburgh-Stanford Link programme and most recently the iDEA Lab initiative. He is closely involved in current activities fostering collaboration between Design and Informatics.

Naheed Raza: Micro Residency
Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop
April - May 2011

Naheed Raza's background is in both Art and Science, having studied Medicine at Oxford University and Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art and the Slade. Much of her work explores the limits of knowledge and ideas relating to haptic and tacit awareness. For her micro-residency at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop Naheed will begin working on a new research project Bread, Bonsai and Bronze. The purpose of this project is to foreground the notion of modulation, malleability and plasticity and hint at the way in which sculptural 'gestures' might permeate culture, mediating many aspects of our physical experience.

Opportunity : High Street Window Performance: Easter Weekend
Looking for volunteers to take part in a one-day Live Art Performance in a window front on the Royal Mile on Saturday 23rd April.
The performance will be documented and featured on the shop website and it should attract a good amount of press interest, as well as interest from the public with it being a busy bank holiday.
It will take place between 10-4 (although this will be organised in shifts).
The performance will involve knitting, in the window space with 1-2 other performers for about an hour, in a neutral body suit (or simple flesh-toned clothes if preferred).
Only very basic knitting knowledge required!
After the performance, the knitted sections will be used to create a sculptural installation in the window space.
Please contact Emily on 07704 279623 - text is best please! Sorry, can't get receive voicemail.

SECOND NATURE opens April 22nd, 7-9 PM
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The exhibition “Second Nature” opens April 22nd, 7-9 pm at Patriothall Gallery: 1D Patriothall, off Hamilton Place, in Stockbridge, Edinburgh. The show runs Tues- Sun. 12-5 pm April 23-30th.

Second Nature investigates the concept of human dominion over the natural environment. Leffler questions the natural and artificial through appropriation, alteration and manipulation of digital images, recalling the worlds of advertising and science fiction. Through this process she renders situations that examine our perception of and role within the natural world.


Leffler is a second year MFA student at Edinburgh College of Art. She completed her BFA in Expanded Media at the University of Kansas in 2008. For more information about Leffler, please visit her blog at:

The reverse of each bookmark will be printed with the winning artists name and with the address of the competition website, where we will exhibit the bookmark designs by all contributing artists.

You can find inspiration in the website's gallery of selected images and texts from CPR’s history or simply use the theme of ‘performance’ as a starting point.

The deadline for design entries is Monday 9th May 2011, full competition details and a copy of the bookmark template is available for download on the competition website or on the CPR website (

Good luck! We look forward to seeing your designs!

Hi there,

My Name is Jess Wood and I work for Beach Break Live, the UK student festival. The festival takes place In Pembrey Country Park, south Wales, and this year 20,000 students will join us for 4 days and 4 nights of fun and frolics, from the 16th until the 20th of June. As part of our preparations for the festival, we are looking for budding artists to produce installations to make our beautiful festival even more beautiful. The theme of our fifth year spectacular is ‘Into the Wild’ and we are looking for anything wild, wacky or even downright silly to adorn the festival site. The installations can be interactive or just aesthetic, and we will cover costs of materials (which must be pre agreed) and provide a free ticket for those who produce installations for us, so they can join in the fun! I was wondering if you could pass the message on to your students? It is a great opportunity for them to get involved with a large scale event and bring their ideas to life and showcase their work, all whilst having a great time. There are also opportunities to get involved with the set up of the festival and other decor on site. All they need to do is contact me on expressing their interest or letting me know their ideas. If students would like to get a feel for the festival and what we do, they can visit

Many thanks, and hope to hear from you soon.

Elements II

Photography Exhibition

18-21st April

Opening night- Monday 18th, 7-9pm

The second installment of images centred around the idea of Elemental Investigations. The work depicts the individual interpretation that each student has regarding elements, this ranges from phyisical attraction in ferromagnetic materials, layered reflection of the body image. To abstractions of artificial light as a way contestation to its invisibility, landscapes illuminated from the reflection of regolith to technologies and the relationship we have with social objects.
