Site-integrity was developed by Julie Marsh, an artist and researcher at the Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM), a world-leading centre in practice-based interdisciplinary practice. Through the exploration of real and representational space, Julie investigates how film and emerging technologies can ‘perform’ place, creating critical experiences for audiences that open debate and question social spaces. Her research is engaged with collaborative and knowledge-led approaches to field research, specifically exploring the ethics of technology as a tool for representation. In 2017, she coined the term ‘site-integrity’ as part of her practice-based PhD at London College of Communication, University of the Arts, London. Projects have been achieved with sustained technical research and development support from Jonny Fuller-Rowell fulfilling the role of technical engineer / computational developer.
Julie is the Co-Director of the CREAM Doctoral Programme at the University of Westminster. She currently supervises PhDs in subjects including art and society, documentary film, site-specific practice, and creative technologies. Julie works closely with The Deep Field Project situated at the intersection of contemporary art practice and ecological, environmental, and social justice and is an active member of HOMELandS (Hub on Migration, Exile, Languages and Spaces) and the Diversity and Inclusion Research Community at the University of Westminster. Julie has exhibited internationally, most recently at Ambika P3 Gallery with Virtual Assembly (2023) and Assembly (2018-21) as part of the Three British Mosques at Venice Architecture Biennale 2021 and Black Box, CAS (Centre for Audiovisual Studies) FAMU, Prague (2021.
