Art-Based Research/Research-Based Art: On Wonder and Rigor
Emme, Michael J.
Canadian Review of Art Education: Research and Issues, v34 p1-7 2007
In a world rich with people, places, things and ideas, all inter-engaged in impossibly complex ways, the question of where individuals direct their attention, and how they organize themselves to understand what they are experiencing is a question that is difficult to answer. In this article, the author suggests that the openings arts-based researchers have created in contemporary academic practice, are an important example of the re-emergence of wonder as a reasonable response to questions in the academy. The author also discusses how the human tendency to organize might lead many to the mental matching of research with rigor and art with expression. (Contains 1 endnote.)
