Peter Day

I am a Senior lecturer in Art and Design at the University of Wolverhampton. I am a Teaching Fellow for the Higher Education Academy, U.K. and an External Examiner for B.A. Art, Design and Media programmes, for curriculum validation and coursework at U.K. Higher Education Institutions.


My artwork analyses the familiar, banal and anonymity in the everyday environment, through walking and serial revisiting. Each impulsive recording is a reflective examination of the 'knowing' of a present experience set against its later remembering, and memory (personal, fantastical, misremembered, nostalgia) that defines the interplay between the body, the imagination, and the world around the walker. Recent publications include: Perambulist Somnambulist - (Featured Poet, Blank Media Collective issue 39 Oct 2011; BBC Radio Shropshire Poetry Reading Oct 31 2011); Garden Manifesto: (Featured Artist, Blank Media Collective issue 21 April 2010); In Momentum-Walk to Work: (Galleri Paradis, Bornholm, Denmark; July-August 2005 Bank St Gallery, Kirrimuir, Scotland) and Invisible Boundaries: (May-June 2005 Thelma Hulbert Gallery, Honiton. Devon May-June 2002 the Michael Tippet Centre, Bath Spa University).


Pedagogic research interests include Verbal Feedback and the Art Critique (UOW 09 ILRN funded) and the development of high quality online content for peer-to-peer feedback and critique (ADM-HEA Teaching Fellowship 2009-10).
I have worked on several projects with Wolverhampton NHS and specifically the Penn Hospital using images to create therapeutic artworks with patients with degenerative illnesses.
