Theory

"I use art to express views on contemporary society. Some works are executed as exercises in arts-based research. Artworks developed as practical visualizations of reserach theories and methods can also function outside of academia as independent results to be experienced in art exhbitions."  

-  Liv Fjellsol, 2023.

The visual artist and theoretician continuously attends interdisciplinary lectures and seminars, and maintains her passion for music and culture in general, to combine a general urge for lifelong learning with the search for inspiration developing her works. The pandemic social distance requirements delayed several of Fjellsol's beloved international cooperations and allowed time to dig even deeper into theory by taking one course per semester which has inspired several works of art and resulted in a few credit points from passing the following courses and writing articles:

 

2023, Doctoral course, Research ethics, IDT8000, 2,5 c, NTNU. Writing the article, Data privacy in art as research, with the artwork Recovery (2022) as practical example.

 

2022, Doctoral course, Research with the arts as methodological practice, LOS8033, 5 c, NTNU. Writing the article: A pursuit of multiple perspectives, with the artwork Busy bee (2021) as practical example.
