SMT is a research communication platform

Studies in Material Thinking is a peer-reviewed international journal reporting on the work of artists, designers and writers. It is a vehicle to support the communication and critique of research and making from the vantage point of both the materiality and the poetics of artistic and design practices. The journal aims to develop a series of divergent positions, critical approaches and contestations around the term ‘material thinking’, centred as it is on an understanding of making, invention, design, creative practice and research methodology.

SMT was a research communication platform in the Faculty of Design and Creative Technologies, Auckland University of Technology.

The journal is no longer active. Funding for publication came to an end in 2017. Auckland University of Technology continues to host this site as a research archive only.
