Selected Publications

The following is a selection of my output published in peer reviewed journals and publications.

Peer reviewed publications in journals and proceedings as a visual artist
       The following items I wrote as critical responces to some of the themes I have deveoped in my creative outpout

Zhang, X., Constable, M., Chan, K.L., Yu, J., Junyan, W. (2017). “Computational Approaches in the Transfer of Aesthetic Values from Paintings to Photographs.” Springer.

This details the research I did with engineers on the subject of computational aesthetics. I wrote three chapters in this book. 


Constable, M. (February 2015). “The Analogue and the Digital Head-Death.” Visual Studies. Taylor & Francis. UK.

This examines the difference between how death is represented by analogue and digital visual effects. 


Constable, M. (2014). “On Contrast.” Turps Banana. London, UK. (Issue. 14, pp. 50-57).

'Turps Banana': IMHO the world's best painting magazine.


Constable, M. & Tan, A. (Nov. 2009). “Visual Digitality: Towards Another Understanding.” Proceedings of Re:Live Media Art Histories. Melbourne, Australia. (pp. 26-29).

This was the paper that was published in the book: 'Re:Live: New Directions in Mediab Art History' (pp. 347-356). Cubitt, S., Thomas. P., (eds.). Cambridge, MA: The MIT Press.
