Tania Leimbach’s research broadly explores culture, discourse, and ecological relations. She completed a PhD titled ‘Sustainability and the Material Imagination’ through the Institute for Sustainable Futures, UTS in 2015.
During her residency at Bundanon, Leimbach worked on developing a publication co-authored with artist and academic Dr. Lucas Ihlein. The paper explored the “field” as a broad spatial metaphor, as well as a physical site for arts-science activities, drawing links between ethnographic method, creative arts practice and the empirical process of scientific fieldwork. Leimbach also collaborated with environmental economist and academic Jodi Newcombe exploring cross-fertilisation between ecological arts and contemporary design theory/practice.
