Practice, Process, and Product: A self-reflexive inquiry of practice-led research in progress
This paper investigates through a series of immersive and interactive installations how traditional notions of family archives have altered due to new media. Notions regarding the affect this might have on the performance of memory are central to this investigation. My creative praxis is situated within a practice-led research methodological paradigm. As this paper will discuss, practice-led research centralises interdisciplinary practices, fosters a holistic and experimental art-making process and is informed by theoretical frameworks and subjectivity. Photographs, videos and personal belongings are sourced from own family’s archives. Consequently, my research approach positions me as artist, subject and researcher working within a framework that encourages subjectivity and reflexivity. This paper will explore the importance for transitional dialogues in practice-led research between theory and artistic practices, processes and products.
