James  Swinson


I'm a filmmaker and writer whose practice involves documentary filmmaking, site-specific installation, video and television script/camera/edit/directing.

I have taught on BA Culture, Criticism and Curation since the course began, and am currently Research Students Tutor and a PhD supervisor at Central Saint Martins. My current research includes writing on the relationship between art, technology and the city.

My particular input to the course will include critical understandings of the archive and their impact on contemporary art, cultural history and advanced issues in research.
