PROVOKE: International Perspectives on Visual Arts Dissertations in Education
Illustrating Methodologies by Linda Knight (Aus), Jackie Batey (UK)
Practice-based research can be highly speculative as often it’s embarked upon with no clear end in sight, the act of research in itself can reveal new directions and discoveries (something that is important to artists/illustrators) but this process can also reveal anxieties that seem to be inherent in practice-based research. The authors, who hold PhDs in illustration practices, trouble the notion of the ‘method’ of practice- based research by ‘co-illustrating’ our working methodologies . As two artists that have completed a PhD by practice, we visually describe our processes to explore methodological similarities and wild differences. We contribute an ‘artistic interlude’ comprising archived materials from our PhDs to show our working process from the identifying of a research question through to resolution in terms of artefact
PhD by Design is a series of events that explore the messiness that is practice-based research
The aim of these events are to vocalise, discuss and work through many of the topical issues of conducting a practice-based PhD in Design.
