Experimental Design Practices Research and Enterprise Group

Organization profile

Profile Information

Black & white image of a hand holding a vesselThe Experimental Design Practices Research and Enterprise Group is a platform for the support and facilitation of experimental design research across all fields of design. We provide a cross-disciplinary platform for the promotion of the rich and varied practice-based design research pursued by colleagues and doctoral students across the University of Brighton. The REG thereby offers a design research hub for collaboration and discussion across disciplines.

Experimentation is one of the oldest methods of artistic research, working with the state of ‘not knowing’ as a creative engine. Members’ work engages with praxis, tacit knowledge and process to evolve new insight and knowledge, ploughing the rich depths of uncertainty as a source of innovation and creative discovery.

As a forum for the discussion and supportive development of on-going research, the REG teases out new routes forward and engages in collaborative practices. We facilitate the effective sharing of research outcomes through the curation of a series of events including exhibitions and symposia, generating wider conversations and opening the work up to a cross-disciplinary audience.

We aim to open opportunities for conversations and collaboration, fostering links across the university and beyond, working closely with the Postgraduate Research Student community and Early Career Researcher network.
