Making Making Matter:
Paper as Paradox in Practice-as- Research

Article written with Emily Orley published in the online journal RUUKKU: Studies in Artistic Research, Nr 4: Process in Artistic Research, 2015

In this exposition we articulate and question our own artistic working process and aesthetic, while exploring how we can make the making of work matter as much as the documents that are made afterwards. We use the remnants of the making of a performance, which began as a dialogue, to make a new performance, with images and words which we take apart and put back together. We set out to ask: how can we celebrate the making while thinking about how and why the making was made? How can we keep the making and thinking about making critical and creative at the same time?
