Paul Landon’s research is built around an artistic practice that explores architectural and urban space, an exploration that is translated into time based images installed within and responding to interior architectural exhibition spaces.

Landon’s doctoral project reconsiders recent concepts of media history and archaeology and relates them to specific questions raised by contemporary artistic practice:  to the architectures and spaces of audio-visual presentation, to an archaeology of the city, to the mobile spectator of minimal art and installation practices. It promotes the activities of a corporeal, wandering subject that engages with the technology and spaces of media as sites of forgetting and recall.
