My contribution to the research investigates narrative through the representation of women in cinema, and the evolution of women through the costuming of spectacles - from spinster to librarian, from codebreaker to editor. As coordinator of the project, the aim is to establish and examine the significance of glasses as a cultural indicator - we are examining the design of eyewear as a symbolic representation of both character and demographic. In a curatorial role, I'm interested in the dialogue creatives from both design and art might have when responding to a set brief.
