Access from EThOS:
Taking identity as a point of departure, I examine specific cultural and philosophical concerns relating to ideas of alienation, and consider the impact of buildings and space - and their more universal implications - on the formation of historical, psychological and social perceptions of (the) `self. My research has introduced me to new writers, theorists and practitioners including Anthony Vidler's meditations on the spatial and emotional anxieties that architecture evokes. - Artists and filmmakers I refer to include, Anslem Kiefer, Werner Herzog, Peter Doig and Stan Douglas. In forming the 'modern' perception of the world, Nicholas Temple considers Friedrich Hölderlin's understanding of topography as the decisive link to a 'mythical past and a transient present'. ' I reflect on Hölderlin's perspective of the world through the notion of 'divine absence' and Heidegger's interpretation of that understanding on the nature of being. Documentation of my practice consists of colour image video stills and text from 2003-2008. CONCLUSION I consider some of the core ideas explored and developed during the doctorate programme and suggest future projects. Temple, N.
