As part of residency and research subject as design fellows, public works got involved in the discussion about a new research centre for the University. Led by Elizabeth Price, "The Centre for Useless Splendour" had been estabilished as a name for a new initiative to develop and implement a new type of research centre. The proposed conceptual and practical model acknowledged the disparity and heterogenity in existing research – especially within the area of Fine Art. What is considered research and research outcomes by the practitioners? And where does it take place? The answers point towards a very widespread network of places and connections, with formal and informal links, occasional and permanent sites.
