The measurement of the significance and 'impact' of research is absolutely paramount in today's academic world - as evidenced by the recent introductions of research assessment exercises in the UK, Australia, Hong Kong and New Zealand. Material Inventions: Applying Creative Arts Research offers new and original ways of conceptualizing impact and innovation in creative arts research. This important book demonstrates how artistic research is capable of solving real-life problems and presenting transforming accounts of the world. What are the inventions and innovations of artistic research? What are the interdisciplinary applications of practice-led research methodologies and outcomes? In what ways can the methods and outcomes of artistic research benefit the broader community and creative and other industries? How can the impact of creative practice as research be demonstrated and more clearly articulated? By articulating the inventions, innovations, application and broader uptake of artistic research in and beyond the field of art, expert contributors advance the claim that artistic research constitutes a new paradigm or 'successor science' that impacts on interdisciplinary research and in diverse community and industry settings. In often surprising and unpredictable ways, the inventions and innovations of artistic researchers are being taken up beyond the creative arts in areas such as fire fighting, computer interfacing and design, public relations, medical science, caring for the aged, local history making, museology, biofeedback technologies and a range of therapeutic settings. This is a timely follow-up to Practice as Research: Approaches to Creative Arts Enquiry and will be indispensible to researchers, institutions and research assessment bodies.
