3D printed auxetics (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Walters, P. (2018, October). 3D printed auxetics. Presented at 4th VIPER School: Composite structures and auxetic systems

The term 3D printing refers to the fabrication of physical objects directly from 3D computer aided design data. Also known as additive layer manufacturing and rapid prototyping, 3D printing generally works by solidifying, fusing or depositing materia... Read More about 3D printed auxetics.

A 3D hybrid auxetic lattice/foam for energy dissipation and posture comfort (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Fieldhouse, R., Worman, H., Phillips, J., Pugsley, O., Murphy, G., Miller, J., …Davies-Smith, A. (2018, September). A 3D hybrid auxetic lattice/foam for energy dissipation and posture comfort. Paper presented at 9th International Conference and 14th International Workshop on Auxetics and Related Systems with “Negative” Characteristics

The work describes the development of an hybrid three-dimensional composite made of a 3D auxetic lattice configuration and a layer of auxetic open cell PU foam for applications, ranging from general energy absorption/packaging to posture comfort and...

The performance of the print (2016)
Thesis
Moseley, P. The performance of the print. (Thesis). University of the West of England

The physical presence of contemporary photographs – whether as magazine, hoarding, wet chemistry, museum displays, inkjet prints or on-screen displays – is subordinate to the content of the image. However, resurgence of interest in the autographic o... Read More about The performance of the print.

An honourable practice: The artist’s print as a strategy for social engagement (2016)
Thesis
Frimodig, K. E. An honourable practice: The artist’s print as a strategy for social engagement. (Thesis). University of the West of England

An Honourable Practice is a cohesive study of the operative and ethical framework around the role of the artist and printmaker. The research project uses the artist’s prints as a strategy for social engagement, drawing on the dynamic between a person...
