Presented as part of Bristol Artists Book Event #BABE2019 | The un-Learning Zone is a playful response to online learning platforms.

The un-Learning Zone is a playful response to online learning platforms.

Online learning platforms are a contemporary approach to learning. When instruction sets or ‘how to’ guides are produced digitally, it is assumed that they are authentic. However, YouTube videos or Wiki guides are complicated responses because they are highly subjective.

The un-Learning Zone disrupts digital orderliness through a systematic process of creative disorder. This mobile service will provide participants with how-to guides, reproduced to disrupt reason. This project suggests how artworks can fade in and out of meaning through the manifestation of errors, which deviate from knowing and logical thought.


Find The un-Learning Zone running through Arnolfini foyer at various times throughout BABE 2019 – Saturday 11am-2pm, Sunday 11am-1pm.


Laura Rosser is a lecturer in Fine Art at Plymouth University on the BA Fine Art programme. She exhibits regularly both nationally and internationally and has received a number of awards for her practice.

In October 2017, she was awarded a 3d3 (AHRC) funded doctoral studentship.

Through her research Laura questions the significance of error in the context of postdigital printmaking. Her research focuses on error as something that has agency and acts in the world. Laura’s work embraces participation, as method, exploring the relationship between participants, print, technology and error.
