Lucy  Smith

Lucy Smith graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, University of Dundee, with a first class B.A. (Hons) Fine Art degree in the summer of 2019. She was also awarded the University’s Alastair Smart Memorial Prize for Sculpture for her work exhibited in the 2019 degree show.

Lucy works in bronze, wood, print and composition. She allows these materials to develop possibilities and draw out ideas, and uses a range of techniques that eliminate, reduce, rotate, invert, overlay, crop, reverse and ‘sound’ her ideas, thus demonstrating the way a concept can be perceived in unexpected ways.  

Lucy is now undertaking research for a practice-led PhD at the University of Dundee. Her subject of research is in the role of art in improving the visual comprehension of science and mathematics. With a research title: Making the Conceptual Tangible: The Role of Art in the Understanding of Mathematics and Physics  she is asking the following questions:

Can art be effective in making abstract or conceptual knowledge accessible to non-conceptual learners?  

How might art maximise observation, questioning, critical thinking and learning?

How effective, for example, might kinetic sculpture, performance and sound art be in capturing interest in, communicating, and aiding comprehension of abstract concepts?
