The brief

Earthen Lamp was commissioned by the University of Warwick to undertake research about the outdoor art and sculptures on campus, with a sample of staff and students. The research aimed to find out about staff and students’ awareness and perception of the sculptures that form part of the University Art Collection.

The activity

The primary research carried out for this project focussed on using surveys and interviews to collect information from the students and staff members at the University of Warwick. Surveys and interview guides were devised by Earthen Lamp to respond to the objectives.

The outcome

Earthen Lamp’s research will feed into how the art collection, sculptures and sculpture trail are promoted and presented on campus.
