Transforming paradigms an a/r/tographical exploration
Metadata[+] Show full item record
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] Artists are researchers and teachers. As an a/r/tographer, I live my research through the three lenses of the artist, researcher, and teacher. These three interconnected identities create a complex mapping of experience, investigation and complicate ways of understanding. Tension becomes a site for diffraction and is a space of emergent new knowing. Knowledge, in my case, manifests through an intra-action of literacies, tensions and encounters. This three-article dissertation explores how knowledge and theory matter. The essence of this research rests in poststructural notions of knowing. As an artist in an academic setting, I have poured myself into making the illusive invisible of how something is known, seen. Artistic and research processes are complex investigations of questions and ideas. Illuminating the unseen yet to be revealed of process requires a different way of conceptualizing questions, data, and analysis. I am interested in the “how” of how a/r/tographical research unfolds and how theory develops. My intention is disrupt traditional notions of qualitative research and to invite readers/viewers into the process to discover new ways to know differently.
