Abstract

This article explores the concept of practice-based research as a viable research avenue for academics in creative disciplines with a view to contextualise the importance of research for all academics, including those in creative disciplines; investigate a framework for defining practice-based research; extrapolate existing models and methods of practice-based research from the literature; develop a plausible working strategy for practice-based research; and finally determine the extent to which the "Tracking creative creatures" project complies with the requirements of practice-based research. While practice-based research is fairly well represented in the literature, the peculiar characteristics of creative work require a reconceptualisation of how research imperatives are satisfied in practice-based research. Practical outputs as embodied research, the importance of the creative process and its reflective documentation and collaborative strategies in creative projects emerged as salient issues.


Hierdie artikel stel homself ten doel om ondersoek in te stel na die konsep van praktykgebaseerde navorsing as werkbare navorsingsroete vir akademici in kreatiewe dissiplines. Die doel is dus om die belangrikheid van navorsing te kontekstualiseer vir alle akademici, ook diegene in die kreatiewe dissiplines; 'n raamwerk te ondersoek waarbinne 'n definisie van praktykgebaseerde navorsing kan tuishoort; bestaande modelle en metodes van praktykgebaseerde navorsing uit die literatuur te ekstraheer; 'n werkbare strategie vir praktykgebaseerde navorsing op die tafel te lê; en om vas te stel in watter mate die "Kreatiewe kreature"-projek voldoen aan die vereistes van praktyk-gebaseerde navorsing. Die literatuur oor praktykgebaseerde navorsing is redelik uitgebreid, maar die eiesoortige kenmerke van kreatiewe werk vra dat navorsingsvereistes geherkonseptualiseer moet word in die lig van praktykgebaseerde navorsing. Praktiese uitsette as beliggaamde navorsing, die belang van die kreatiewe proses tesame met dokumentasie van refleksie daaroor en samewerkingstrategieë in kreatiewe projekte het geblyk om van sentrale belang te wees in hierdie verband.
