Terry Perk

Dr Terry Perk is the Lead Academic for the MAKE Research Cluster and the course leader for MA Fine Arts at UCA Canterbury. His research interests are concerned with questions of embodiment, perception and architectural programming as they relate to contemporary sculpture. Exploring the situational dynamics of given sites as a question of sensual engagement, Perk’s practice examines the way an embodied sense of place can be restructured to invite and question forms of individual and social engagement.

In the context of MAKE, Perk is concerned with the way in which practitioners from different disciplines and industries utilize models differently in thinking through issues of space and spatialization. He is currently directing a film titled ‘The Model Room’, which will explore the collaborative relationship between the artist Olafur Eliasson & the architect and geometrist Einar Thorsteinn.
