Mastering new technologies or materials (however simple), fosters the ‘making strange’ which contributes to the disruptive quality needed for new understanding. For me, still in the process of developing an ethical framework for this kind of research, the fact that participating in the creative research activity of itself has the potential to offer participants positive impact (for example, contribute to their greater sense of agency or wellbeing), is significant.

For example, Graham and Goetz Zwirn (2010) examined the art practice of art teachers in K-12 education to question how being an active artist contributed to, or detracted from their work as teachers. Using A/R/Tography as a framework in examining art making, researching and teaching, the inquiry process revealed that artistic practice significantly influenced the complex interactions between the subject, teacher and student, cultivating conversations, creating a safe space for engaging with students in unstructured creativity and thus establishing a context for artistic, playful exploration.

For me, as an artist and a teacher and a writer, it is a good fit. It requires sensitivity, good judgement, an ironic posture that doesn’t take itself too seriously, and a great deal of organisation, rigour and discipline. It is not for the fainthearted, and it is a tremendous amount of work. Yet, it is wonderfully invigorating and in itself, very satisfying.
