This eight-week residency supports an established designer/maker at a key stage in their career. It enables the artist to undertake research, explore new ideas and make significant developments in their practice within the context of Cove Park’s international and cross-disciplinary programme.

Previous residents on this programme include Linda Florence, Charlotte Linton, Lina Peterson, Joe Pipal, Pottinger and Cole.

James Thompson is a designer working across product design, furniture, installation and performance. His work deals with the perception of space and its interpretation.

He intends to use his residency to explore and develop a series of new recording tools and systems focused on the documentation and re-interpretation of exterior space.
