This article focuses on the research of three artistic researchers working within the Lace Archive at Nottingham Trent University. The discussion will center around an artist residency, which utilized the Lace Archive as the starting point for the development of new artwork that was exhibited at Backlit Gallery, Nottingham and subsequent tour. Focus and discussion fall on the development of a new working methodology called the ‘controlled rummage’. The article highlights the ‘Bummock ethos’ that utilizes the strengths within the act of seeking the unknown from a starting point of ‘not knowing’. Also examined is what has been learnt from the project within the Lace Archive towards establishing the framework and methodology for the wider project, Bummock: New Artistic Responses to Unseen Parts of the Archive.
