What name is there for the colour that arouses this thirst?

Mary Modeen

Mary Modeen is an artist and a senior academic at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, University of Dundee (Scotland). She teaches undergraduates and postgraduates both fine art and interdisciplinary studies, linking creative practice with academic studies in the humanities, particularly philosophy, literature, feminist and indigenous studies. An MFA course in Art & Humanities begins in September 2012, which Modeen directs. She also supervises PhD candidates in interdisciplinary practice-led research, and serves as an external examiner in this capacity. Her own research has several threads: perception as a cognitive and interpretive process, and place-based research, which tends to connect cultural values, history and embodied experience. As such, this work usually combines creative art practice and writing.

This web site allows you to view a selection of her works and to read a selection of her writing. Like most web sites, this is a live document and a work-in-progress.
