Why choose action research as the research mode? Principles of collaboration and learning through doing Enabled initiating researchers to occupy different roles according to the work we were engaged in: Planner leader Catalyser facilitator Listener observer Synthesizer reporter We were not required to remain objective, but needed open to acknowledge our biases to other participants

A Personal Response by Alison Mawle to Pacific Yukinori Yanagi 2000

 

Looking at the Object: A response by Sancha Briffa to Robert Morris Untitled 1965/71

Outcomes Interpretation as a dialogical process; art work conceptualised in responses (multi-modal) Moments of coherence in what was essentially a destabilising process Acceptance of shifting frameworks for interpretation; no final point of stasis Understanding that meanings can shift; they have a contingent quality; they are iterative Instability can be liberating…

Interpretation as a dialogical process; art work conceptualised in responses (multi-modal)

Moments of coherence in what was essentially a destabilising process

Acceptance of shifting frameworks for interpretation; no final point of stasis

Understanding that meanings can shift; they have a contingent quality; they are iterative

Instability can be liberating…

This has allowed me to break out of a trap of limited knowledge and confidence. I’ve gained a tremendous range of strategies and now value a range of responses to what I see and still want to know more. Sancha Briffa KS 2 teacher

Richardson, in discussing research design in the philosophical context of postmodernism, suggests that “the central image is the crystal, which combines symmetry and substance with an infinite variety of shapes, substances, transformation, multi-dimensionalities, and angles of approach”, which reflects and refracts understandings in the creation of more complex understandings. ( New Approaches in Social Research , Carol Grbich) Having a research sensibility at the heart of programming means embracing such complexity and acknowledging that it’s an ongoing process (implications for budget and time management) which can take a multitude of forms Part of striving for learning programmes to be the crystal – the jewel - in the crown of the art museum, which at present privileges knowledge about art over knowledge about interactions with art Building on research
