Newman, A., & Tarasiewicz, M. (2013). Experimental cultures and epistemic spaces in artistic research. In L. Fisher, R. Harley, & K. Cleland (Eds.), Proceedings of the 19th international symposium on electronic art. Sydney: University of Sydney.

In this paper we use developments in the history of science to demonstrate the significance of experimental cultures and epistemic spaces within artistic research as an experimental system. We propose that ‘artistic products’ are process artefacts, which are of epistemic nature (epistemic-aesthetic things). We suggest that artistic research provides a unique opportunity to integrate diverse epistemic practices that currently exist outside traditional institutional frameworks to develop new hypotheses-generating experimental cultures.
