In my research, as in my art and my teaching, I believe that both approaches are required. Discipline is also absolutely necessary, since a constant and very self-aware approach is crucial to the success of this type of research.

Continued 32 UNDERTAKING ARTS-RELATED RESEARCH All research is interpretive, but arts-based inquiries are very self-conscious.

The type of arts-related research that such researchers might engage with is more akin to artsinformed inquiry, also referred to by Ewing and Hughes (2008:516) as ‘expressive construction’, the focus being to communicate new understandings through creative means, yet without those creative means being considered as works of art. Whilst those new to the field of arts-related research may be interested in how the arts can enrich and extend qualitative methodologies and epistemologies (Daykin, 2008), tensions exist and issues of quality and representation remain.

A healthy scepticism and an ironic posture have also been helpful tools. My ability not to take myself seriously at times, and to welcome the criticism of others, especially non-academics, has been of enormous benefit. It is essential for me to be very structured and organised in the construction of my research. I find it necessary to keep both mental and physical records of where it is going. It is vital to be multitask-oriented. On the other hand, it is also necessary to allow the work to ‘breathe’, and whilst I am aware that this sounds very esoteric, it is an artistic truth for me.
