 +> In practice-led research (PLR), the artifact has a central position in the academic research process. In PLR, ‘articulation and dissemination of the research findings take place both through the product of making [the artifact] and established means: these are seen as dialogical, interrelated and iterative (Faber, 2009). Practice informs knowledge which reciprocally informs practice.(Resmini,​ 2010)((Resmini,​ A., Hobbs, J., & Fenn, T. (2010). Maturing a Practice. Journal of Information Architecture,​ 2(1).)) ​
 +> PLR, while including all the qualities of established institutional research
 +practices, strongly focuses on artifacts as the vessels of discursive
 +knowledge. This is an essential reason why PLR is so important to developing
 +design-based disciplines.(Resmini,​ 2010)((Resmini,​ A., Hobbs, J., & Fenn, T. (2010). Maturing a Practice. Journal of Information Architecture,​ 2(1).))

 +> PLR, although variously defined, can be considered to be a ‘self-reflexive’ form of research where: ​
 +> • the artist / designer / creative practitioner provides a rigorous critical analysis of their work, positioning it within broader contextual / theoretical / historical / discursive research paradigms;
 +> • articulation of the processes involved in making the product of research form an important part of the research findings;
 +> • articulation and dissemination of the research findings takes place both through the product of making and established academic means. These are seen as dialogical and interrelated (Faber, 2009:7).
