Journal for Artistic Research (JAR) issue 11 out now
The online, peer-reviewed journal for the
publication and discussion of artistic research.
JAR is open-access, free to read, and to contribute.
We are very proud to announce our eleventh issue with contributions by:
Marcus Maeder (CH), Jean-Marie Clarke (DE),
Tormod Dalen (FR) and Nandita Dinesh (IN).
Marcus Maeder presents an artistic research
project concerned with the meaningful
representation and inte-gration of
ecophysiological and climatic processes in and
around plants via sonification processes.
Jean-Marie Clarke gives an account of how the
development of Rembrandt's artistic identity can
be traced in his signatures as an example of how
attention to detail matters in an artist's
practice. Tormod Dalen opens up additional
possibilities to performers of classical dance
music by examining how the physical experience of
dance and decisions of choreography influence the
performance of Bach's cello suites. Nandita
Dinesh's research uses techniques from
site-sensitive, promenade, and immersive theatre
to productively engage with the political
deadlock that results from simplistic
representations of communities.
Keywords include: immersive theatre,
site-sensitive performance, signature, pictogram,
Rembrandt, blind-ness, Bach, kinaesthetic
empathy, dance tempo, ecophysiology,
bioacoustics, and sound art.

'Including media and, more generally,
non-propositional content in a journal arti-cle
undoubtedly increases its complexity allowing
more demanding things to be communicated. The
labour involved in understanding media-rich,
multimodal, and often non-linear articles can be
either rewarding or frustrating depending on how,
on reflection, we evaluate this encounter. As a
reviewer recently comment-ed: 'I really enjoyed
working on this article and want to thank you for
the oppor-tunity. It is only in this close
reading that I became aware of how effectively
your format works.' It may be that reading JAR's
expositions of practice as research must always
be 'close'; it may also be that expositions
invite closeness in ways that more conventional
journal articles cannot or do not want to afford.'
