Field Study is an international Mail Art group begun in 1993 by David Dellafiora and Benedict Phillips. Since its inception, Field Study members have been involved in a variety of projects, including group shows, performances, installations, bookworks, sound art, solo activities and community work. For some live projects see the Field Study International blog. Each year members send 100 A5 pages as their contribution to the Field Report; in turn they receive a copy of the report. This publication - 'The Journal of Field Study International' - is assembled and distributed by David Dellafiora who also places it within archives (such as Artpool), libraries and collections. The current list of members runs to over 200. Field Study members with their own websites include: Martha Aithchison, Keith Bates, Mark Pawson and Benedict Phillips

Field Study terms
( - taken from a description in the 1995 Field Report):
'Field Study originates from a decision made in 1993 to reclaim the negative spaces on a CV i.e. the gaps. By claiming these gaps, 'Time' is seen as whole and continuous, this we call The Field. Thoughts formulated from data from The Field is known as Field Study. Activities stemming from Field Study become Emanations and group emanations resulting in events as Manifestations, returning full circle back into The Field'
