Bimblebox: art – science – nature has become the subject of a research thesis by Andrew Nicholson.

Depiction of Environment through Art

If you have seen the touring Bimblebox: art – science – nature exhibition, viewed  its companion social media app, or its paper or digital catalogue consider taking part in this academic research based around the exhibition Bimblebox: art – science – nature.  

It is quick and easy to do.  You will be asked to report on your experience and response to the artworks by completing a survey.  This can be done on paper, via PDF or an online survey, link given below. Your input would make a valued contribution to exploring ways to help close the environmental attitude-action gap through the use of environment themed art.

Researcher Andrew Nicholson looks forward to your lodged digital survey or hearing from you. Andrew will be happy to answer any questions you may have prior to making a decision about possible involvement in this study.  His contact details are given immediately below – followed by the link to the online survey which should take about 20 minutes to complete.

As with all survey formats used in this research the Qualtrics survey has been officially approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee of the University of New England (Approval No HE16-085 – valid to 27/04/2017). Accordingly, before completing the online form you will be asked to read about your ethical protections. That is regarding your confidentiality in taking the survey, and the protection of your data. These protections are provided by the University, and if you are satisfied with them you can then sign a consent form embedded in the survey itself. This allows you to become an official research participant in this work.
If you wish to take the survey by ‘fill able’ PDF form please contact Andrew at the details supplied and he will supply the relevant documents by email attachment. Alternatively, there will be a number of paper copies of the survey available at the gallery or museum venue which is housing the Bimblebox exhibition – and these can be returned to Andrew by pre-paid envelope. In all cases, you will need to read about your ethical protections and formally consent to become a research participant under the protocols set out by the University of New England before coming into the research as a volunteer.”
