I have a paper forthcoming in Design Studies - available via their in press list which is a (single) study of fine art collaboration - and relates the(ir) practice to what we know about designing. There is also recent work by Linden Ball at Lancaster, UK working with poets - there are refs to some of this latter in the Design Studies paper. Please let me know off-list if you publish anything.

Subject: differences in process between design and other creative disciplines.
I would be interested to know if anyone is doing work which seeks to establish differences in process between design and other creative disciplines such as music. Obviously outcomes/artefacts are different, but are the processes the same? If they are indeed the same, then why do we differentiate the design process from the creative process? Questions, questions.This is my new, post PhD research direction and one which I seek to partly pursue through my own creative practice as a musician and illustrator. In my previous work I used Swann's (2002) design process model to help describe the processes of my illustration students when they interpreted written text into illustrations. Here is the link to the thesis if anyone is interested.http://mro.massey.ac.nz/handle/10179/1046
Creative practice as research method is a new venture for me, but I do think that having undergone the rigours of a traditional PhD I may now be in a position to develop verifiable knowledge. If I don't, well I'm going to have a ball writing songs and painting! [log in to unmask]
