Cut and Paste Project Scoops 3 More Design Awards and a Book Chapter
July has been an incredibly busy month for me; with preparing to teach online for the upcoming semester, finalising a few research projects and applying for new ones alongside many other creative projects running in the background. So it's very rewarding to find that all my hard work is beginning starting to pay off.
The Cut and Paste: Preventing Visual Plagiarism project is part of 'Reviewing the Prevalence of Visual Plagiarism Within a Visual Arts Context'. a Tier 1 funded research grant, awarded by Singapore's MOE and NTU's Research Integrity and Ethics Office (RIEO) Meaning that the creative aspect to the work it is also underpinned by academic research. I've created a Press release PDF detailing the project which can be downloaded below:
This brings me to the first announcement on this blog post...
