Osäkra möten : Perspektiv på metodbildning för det konstnärliga högskolefältet
Sammanfattning: The dissertation’s background consists of a conceptual and ideohistorical il-lumination of contrasting relationships, distinction, and partition of work between science, art, design, and architecture, both as concept, field, and acti-vities. Simultaneously it consists of an investigation of whether these contra-sting relationships are possible to displace in connection to the artistic field of research. The dissertation is defined to inquire what artistic research can be but most of all how it can be formed. The scientific method has by tradition been a delimination between science and other investigations and experiments. Nevertheless it has been customary within the artistic field of university educa-tion to adopt scientific methods of identity and unity making from other di-sciplines in report on project- and Diploma work. In the light of current ap-prehensions within large parts of the artistic field of university education to-wards subordination of artisticly created project work to traditionally scientific methods when making a report is a method for investigation developed with the capacity: to bring out the significance of the subject in the formulation of the work procedure; to establish relations between personal experiences and conventional statements; and also to remain in singular events instead of exce-eding them towards theoretical generality. The method of inquiry “Uncertain Meetings” relates to ideas of creating, or producing, difference through the set up of meetings between: theory and practice; form and content; discoursive and intuitive knowledge. These meetings will be most fruitful when allowed to take place in uncertainty. Since the scientist or student within artistic rese-arch on the artisticly creative area’s own terms are to be considered both as theorists, who practise their ideas, and as practicians, who generate new theo-ries, the method of investigation will be tested in an artisticly explorative pro-ject work. The method of investigation is used as a means to create space. Simultaneously the creation of space is equated with textual media’s ability to make, intermediate, and communicate information, that neither contradicts the thought of functionality or meaning, the facticity of material or form nor its emotional and associative effects. The method of investigation has obvious applicability within the artistic field of university education for postgraduate and doctoral studies in design and architecture. This is due to that the method enables open and uncertain meetings between scientific investigations and research, whose primary ambition is to produce knowledge, and artistic development work, whose primary ambition is to promote change. “Uncertain meetings” makes it possible to try and find different artisticly creative solu-tions and change complex relationships as well as produce anexact knowledge.
