Personal profile


Rob Lycett is an artist and Senior Lecturer. He has an MA in Smart Design, awarded in 2007, and a Postgraduate Certificate in Professional Development (Higher Education Practice), awarded in 2005.

His art practice is a collection of acts of poetic ‘stillness’ performed within various analogue and digital media, taking the form of films, books, designs, drawings, writings, typographic objects, digital installations and live performances. These acts are contextualised by drawing upon the literary theories of the ‘Ouvroir de littérature potentielle’ (Oulipo), the aleatory compositions of John Cage, and the Situationist International.
