Writing the self: the heuristic documentation of performance
Author: Freeman, John

Abstract:This paper is concerned with appropriate methods of documenting reflective practice: ways which take unapologetic account of the random and the unplanned as well as of the intentional or calculated. It proposes that a heuristic approach to documentation is, in itself, a creative process, and one that pays greater respect to the acts of creation that it describes. What makes practice academic is the complex interchange of ideas, theories and processes that are engaged in, recognized and articulated during the period of making the work.
