Hephzibah Rendle-Short & Dino Alfier

Dino Alfier is pursuing a PhD research, at University of the Arts London, on the notion of attention proposed by the French philosopher Simone Weil and its relevance to the field of art practice. The title of his research is The Semethics of Simone Weil: Attention as Geometric Mean between the Existent and the Real.

Hephzibah Rendle-Short is a PhD candidate at the Royal College of Art and the title of her research is In pursuit of the lost object. In this research she aims to investigate the claim that Freud makes in his essay on Negation that to verify a thing, which we have already observed, we match the hallucination in the mind against the object in reality. That is to say the memory of the thing comes first and then we re-find it in reality.
