As an artist Leah King-Smith has worked for several years in the creative medium of photography exploring notions of multidimensional states of consciousness particularly in reference to the psychic work of Jane Roberts. In this thesis King-Smith presents her creative developments as a technological shift from analogue to digital imaging, and continues, in her Research Project, to follow the same threads of investigation into the use of multi-layering as symbol and expression of simultaneous time. The thesis is two-fold in approach where in the first section, processes, contexts and concepts are presented and in the second section the themes and analysis of the final works are expressed through a creative writing style. The dichotomous method of interpretation in these two sections embodies the antithetical relationship artists experience between reflexive analysis and creative practice as methods of knowledge.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
