Becoming and disappearing: Between art, architecture and research

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This paper examines some parallels and differences in pursuing practice-based research in art or architecture. Using a series of different headlines and examples, I examine the potential of workingbetweenart and architecture, which I argue could generate new, hybridised methodologies of practice through interrogating the possibilities of art/architecture beyond the institution. Within the familiarity of the everyday lives the ‘intuitive’ knowledge that art embodies, and this paper further seeks to ask what this can contribute to debates around practice-led research in art and architecture, recognising ‘the art aspects of design’. Through discussing the role of collaboration, intuition and in-betweenness, I hope to ask questions about the role of the researcher in the ‘becoming and disappearing’ of practice-based research.
