Spencer Roberts

about the author

Spencer Roberts is a senior lecturer in the Department of Art, Design, and Architecture at the University of Huddersfield in the UK. He teaches a series of discipline specific theory modules alongside a general departmental lecture programme that collectively operates under the rubric of theory-as-practice. His artwork focuses upon corporeal textual production and physical computing as a material form of expression. His recently submitted doctoral thesis explores a number of broadly Deleuzian, process-philosophical perspectives on artistic forms of research, exploring their at once integrative and differential dimensions while attempting to complicate a number of textually oriented sceptical positions through the employment of aesthetico-conceptual interventions.
