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.'
