I am Gerry Smith, a text-based artist whose recent work has been concerned with the infraordinary, i.e. the commonplace, the everyday. Thaw is part of an exploration of the use of participatory artforms as a key element in an endotic research process.
I am currently a postgraduate researcher at Edinburgh College of Art (University of Edinburgh). I am also a professional member of the Society of Scottish Artists, and a member of CIRCLE (Collective Interdisciplinary Research in Collaborative Environments). I was the curator of thetextisthetext (WASPS Patriothall Gallery, Edinburgh, 2011). Further information can be found on my website (see Links) .
