Making Artistic Inquiry Visible" W. Garrett-Petts 01 Those of us whose work crosses disciplinary boundaries find ourselves—from time to time—with no firm place to stand.
Such displacement is usually temporary, frequently uncomfortable, but almost always an invitation toward some new insight or perspective. I was trained as a literary critic and composition specialist, and I later developed an interest in interarts practices.
My academic preparation argued for keeping the works studied at arm's length, safely aestheticized as objects of critical attention. However, the more I worked with visual artists, the more I found myself drawn into initially unfamiliar practices and venues: These interests and set of ongoing conversations found a congenial home last year at the Imaging Place Conference, where thirty or so writers, artists, and theorists gathered to both exchange and mutually explore notions of place, space, and interdisciplinary ways of knowing.
At root, Ulmer is outlining and developing an alternative methodology—what he called first "applied grammatology" taking his lead from Derrida and later "teletheory" and "chorography"—for humanities-based research: As I understand it, Ulmer posits the "emergence of a new discourse.
Ulmer's targets here are the traditional assumptions, methodologies, and knowledge claims we've come to take for granted as part of normal research, those characterized by a distanced self-awareness, by the logic of classical reasoning, and by the framing and resolution of a critical problem 70 — The "research pun," for example, is cited as an important tool for "bringing together two unrelated semantic fields on the basis of one or more shared words.
The terms of one field are treated as figures for the other, as an invention for problem-solving" Conduction asks the critic to become a kind of performance artist, performing in tune with the work of art instead of merely interpreting it.
Michael Jarrett put it this way during a workshop presentation: Contemporary movements such as conceptual art, performance art, and video art may be considered from our perspective as laboratories for a new pedagogy, since in these and other movements research and experiment have replaced form as the guiding force.
In short, there is a general shift underway, equally affecting the arts and the sciences, in which the old classifications organizing the intellectual map into disciplines, media, genres, and modes no longer correspond to the terrain.
The organizing principle of the current situation is the collapse of the distinction opposition or hierarchy between critical-theoretical reflection and creative practice. Applied Grammatology The fragmentation of the disciplines, the blurring of boundaries—and what Saul Ostrow calls the "increasing instrumentalism" personal interview of those working in academe—makes the prospect of integrating creative practice attractive, at the very least as a means of reanimating many academic areas and approaches.
Artistic inquiry is seen by those in the social sciences especially education and social work and the sciences especially the health sciences as a way of provoking new questions, enlivening discussion, incorporating narrative, and so on.
I am especially interested in how Ulmer employs what artists say and write about their own work—their interviews, lectures, and artist statements—as a means of researching through art.
It seems reasonable to speculate that artist statements like those cited by Ulmer offer readymade variations of a genre where critical reflection and creation meet—a kind of writing that exists at "the same level as, even as part of.
A great deal has been written over the last ten years about those "many teachers of writing who were trained in print-based rhetorics [but] now want to articulate principles of visual rhetoric for our students" Hocks Gunther Kress and Robert Hodge's Reading Images, for example, emphasizes "the grammar of visual design," including such topics as page design, arrangement, and layout; Craig Stroupe's "Visualizing English" focuses on teaching hybrid literacy; Steve Westbrook's "Visual Rhetoric in a Culture of Fear" argues for the integration of multimedia or visual production in college composition classes, noting that while attention to the visual may increase students' exposure and critical response to images, they are seldom encouraged to practice new modes of visual composition.
Those advocating greater attention to the visual point out how seldom students are asked to practice multimedia or visual production in composition classes; they note how visual rhetoric may be variously defined and accommodated, even domesticated, as one more "frame of analysis for looking and interpreting" Westbrook —as one more essay prompt, rather than as an opportunity for multimodal composition.
Visual Communication in the Teaching of Writing" anticipates the NCTE's Summary Statement on teaching multi-modal literacies and offers one possible future for composition instruction: For students who have grown up in a technology-saturated and an image-rich culture, questions of communication and composition absolutely will include the visual, not as attendant to the verbal but as complex communication intricately related to the world around them.
Remarkably little attention is paid to Ulmer's notion of the visual and performing arts as laboratories for a new writing pedagogy. Yet surely visual artists have much to say about the relationship between image and text—new perspectives that, for the most part, those working in the social sciences and the humanities have not yet heard.
Unpacking this sense of unease regarding written statements seems an important point of entry into the visual arts community, into a discourse constructed of generally unspoken common values and practices.
If we want to understand the role artist statements broadly defined might play as both verbal extensions of the art and potential models for artistic inquiry, we need to also appreciate and document the artistic community's reservations about writing such statements.
Artists are often depicted and represent themselves as working intuitively, reliant on unexamined inspiration and working without any traditionally-defined "research" objective. From Plato's Ion to the present day, the image of the inspired but unreflective artist persists.
Graeme Sullivan offers a further variation on this theme: The concern would seem to be that a tradition of relative silence among artists may allow artistic inquiry to be defined by others, particularly by those working in the social sciences, at the very moment when a new field of practice is being articulated both inside and outside the universities.
This experimentation beyond scientific modes of discourse has created hybrid forms—notably performance art pedagogy.With the leaves gone, animals have less food and shelter.
“I will write, ‘Play outside at least once a day’ or ‘Every day, use your imagination to build—not your iPad’ or something. However, in Source Code, THE PRIME objective is to catch the terrorist to thwart the future bomb timed to destroy the entire city and possible uncover a terrorist cell.

A black belt is a white belt who didn’t quit. P.S. Here’s what I’ve learned from my decades-long observation and exploration into what makes me click as an artist, what holds me back, what holds me down, what gets in my way, what leads me astray.
