Researchers who draw upon artistic practice as a medium of knowledge creation and representation require and often rely upon skills that are central to improvisation, such as an openness to uncertainty, an attunement to difference and the aesthetic intelligence necessary to track significance. This paper examines art-based research through the lens of improvisation in order to highlight critical challenges and opportunities in this emerging approach to enquiry.
