Back Through the Looking Glass: A Review of the Fourth International Visual Methods Conference

The title ‘Back through the looking glass’ reflects my ongoing engagement with the evolving and dynamic biannual International Visual Research Methods Conference. What I really like about the IVM is the way it encourages innovation and change rather than becoming a staid repetition that rolls out a similar format and style that engenders inertia. To some extent this is encouraged by the newness of the conference team every two years; different people, different places and new ideas and ways of thinking mean that each conference is fresh and exciting, but also resonant of the original aims of IVM, to enable a space for sharing, learning, exploring and of course challenging visual methodologies, performances and practices.
