First, the need to develop methods and to build theories and models to enhance research practice that is theoretically and methodologically robust; Second, the desire for arts-related research to remain undefined, non-paradigmatic and discipline-less (Sullivan, 2006). Those researchers advocating the latter perspective reject structured forms of methodology which may limit that which can be known. Rather, they see arts-related research as inquiry that unfolds, is fluid, and leads to new, diverse forms of knowledge production, through novel artistic strategies as the researcher and the researched are open to be changed by the creative, critical and reflexive process.

In order to make the best use of creative methods, researchers must use them for themselves: develop a deeper understanding of materials, technologies and creative processes, have a bit of fun, and begin to become hybrid artist-researchers. If the artistic process is viewed as the important means of creating new relationships, then as Challis suggests, an understanding of art forms, materials and the creative process may provide important insights for those researchers thinking about if and how they might implement the approach.

For me, still in the process of developing an ethical framework for this kind of research, the fact that participating in the creative research activity of itself has the potential to offer participants positive impact (for example, contribute to their greater sense of agency or wellbeing), is significant. As I continue to struggle with the interpretation of creative data, I am convinced that, as with ‘high’ art, meanings are made between people; they are not inherent in the work. It is the aesthetic value of the data which suggests to me that, although visual or thematic analyses (like those used in visual cultural analysis) may be useful to identify patterns and direct research questions, asking participants to interpret their own artwork is vital: and they may use this process to construct a new narrative about the research question, or about themselves.
