About the cluster

Narrative / Trace / Physicality is one of four research clusters within the School of Art at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA).

Narrative was devised to bring together a selection of visual imagery from the members of the Narrative research cluster at Edinburgh College of Art and offer the writer Tessa Berring the opportunity to respond to these works in a creative manner.
