Developing embodied knowledge requires the pursuit and construction of forms of knowing a subject that relate to the entire person. One of the central forms of embodied knowledge for the artist occurs within the art-making process itself. While the pursuit of technical mastery is an essential form of embodied research within the art-making process, other forms of embodied research take place outside the studio. An aspect of embodied research is intentionally interacting with images in a deeper way through drawing, or other ways of examining it. Savvy artists at any level of experience understand the gifts that both digital and physical platforms bring to embodied research work, and tend to see digital platforms as supplemental, rather than replacement technologies. Koichi Yamamoto's reading is an example of an important form of research that is engaged in by the majority of successful artists.
