In the Tactile Imagination: Design Research Processes exhibition, currently showing at the Ivan Dougherty Gallery, industrial designers, architects and artists from the Faculty of the Built Environment (FBE) have stepped outside the boundaries of their disciplines to experiment with art.

The brain child of Tom Loveday, a senior lecturer in the FBE, Tactile Imagination features art works by the Faculty's Design Research Group and celebrates the creative process.

Rina Bernabei and Kelly Freeman, Tom Loveday, Andrew Macklin, William MacMahon and Matthew Johnson, Ainslie Murray, and Ann Quinlan and Oya Demirbilek with Michael Yip and Rido Pin use painting, sculpture, installation and digital projections to extend their theoretical research into the real world of art.

The exhibition is on until 30 June at the Ivan Dougherty Gallery, Selwyn Street, Paddington. For more information click here
