An ecology of practice in the everyday: leaving the (social) ground of (artistic) intervention more fertile.

This paper reviews the projects that fed into the On the Edge research programme between 2001-2004. Jane Jacobs’ The Nature of Economies (2000) offers an account of economies, based on the way energy operates and is transformed in ecosystems. The authors use this understanding to reflect on the Arts & Humanities Research Board funded On The Edge project, a practice-led arts research project in the rural North East of Scotland. The paper considers the ways in which development, co-development and differentiation open up understandings of research questions and project framings. Aspects of the five ‘live’ artists’ projects within On The Edge undertaken between the researchers and partner organisations are considered in detail. Dialogue between researchers, partners and artists is articulated using a multivocal form which acknowledges shared agency in the way the story is told. The analysis offers a distinct way of understanding practice-led research co-produced with partners in terms of flows and transformations of energy. Douglas proposed using The Nature of Economies; Fremantle and Douglas jointly developed analysis; Fremantle introduced the Harrisons’ multivocal approach; Fremantle and Douglas jointly developed multi-vocal form as well as the conclusions.
