Richard Kearns is currently a research student with CoDE at Anglia Ruskin University.
Over the years Richard has worked on a variety of trans-disciplinary projects and collaborations, from the constructing giant Zoetropes in London, to erecting traditional Dhokra mud and brick furnaces and kilns in India. These collaborations have often been accompanied with Printmaking practices, either directly incorporated, or running alongside. His present research investigates intersections emerging between Printmaking, digital technology and participatory processes.
