Telematic Practice and Research Discourses: Three Practice-based

ByResearch Project Case Studies

This chapter focuses on the production, documentation and preservation of the author’s telematic, practice-based research in the interactive media arts. It reflects a timely practice review with significant implications for the future of exhibiting and archiving the broad range of creative arts in this field. These fundamental research questions also have relevance across a number of practice-based research fields including performance arts and the ephemeral nature of open-system interactive artworks. The objective of this chapter is to propose research methods that will approach the question of how to document and archive appropriately this transient creative practice that is so often reliant on its immediate cultural and historic context.
