METHODS

Methodology: “The Ecology of Artistic Research” project adopts a dual methodology, combining elements of qualitative documentation and artistic response. The interviews, podcasts, and articles serve as documentation of the artistic researchers’ investigations and their perspectives on the role of sustainability and embodied knowledge in their work.

At the same time, the project is an artistic response to the subject matter, as the interviews and podcasts are created with a creative and aesthetic approach, and the articles are written with the intention of exploring and expressing ideas in an engaging and artistic manner. The project also invites the artistic researchers to reflect on their own artistic practice and how it informs their research.

By combining documentation and artistic response, the project aims to create a unique and dynamic representation of the field of artistic research, capturing both the practical and creative aspects of the researchers’ work. The final outcome of the project is not only an educational resource, but also an artistic expression that contributes to the ongoing discourse on artistic research.

Further Development: As a next step, the “The Ecology of Artistic Research” project can be developed into immersive performances and a publication. The audio-visual material collected through the interviews, podcasts, and articles is made to be used as the basis for creating immersive performances that bring the researchers’ investigations to life and engage audiences in new and innovative ways.

Additionally, the project could culminate in a publication, showcasing the research and creative work of the artistic researchers, as well as the project itself. The publication would include transcripts of the interviews, podcasts, and articles, as well as images, visual material, and other multimedia elements that further explore the themes of sustainability and embodied knowledge. Funding would be required for this step of the project.

Through these further developments, the project could continue to serve as a platform for exploring and promoting artistic research, while also offering new and exciting opportunities for engagement and collaboration between artists, researchers, and audiences.
