David’s PhD research at the School of Visual and Performing Arts, University of Tasmania, Launceston titled Fragments: Beyond the Object focused on the temporal, spiritual and conceptual space that surrounds the physicality of the object and how the form and quality of an object can influence the reading and subsequent interpretation of that surrounding space.
As background research he examined selected aspects of Classical and Renaissance sculpture from an archaeological and historical perspective. This research has assisted his contemporary art practice which uses digital media to manipulate elements of light and dark to create speculative propositions about the nature of the space that lies beyond the object.
