Art and science are not separate domains, but rather two dimensions in the common cultural space. This means, research is not then or only artistic, if carried out by artists, but deserves the attribute artistic, where, when and by whom whatsoever been made to a specific quality: the mode of artistic experience. Artistic experience is itself a form of reflection. And furthermore, whether implicit or explicit, artistic knowledge is embodied knowledge. The knowledge that artistic research strives for is a felt knowledge.
