THE ROLE OF THE ARTEFACT AND FRAMEWORKS FOR PRACTICE-BASED RESEARCH

This chapter is concerned with the role of the artefact in practice-based research and the frameworks necessary to the success of practitioner research in the creative arts. We begin with the artefact and its role in research and knowledge creation and go on to place it within the context of practitioner and organizational frameworks. We describe the way in which conceptual frameworks play a central role in the practicebased research process, illustrated by specific examples from recent PhD programmes in the digital arts.
