This essay seeks to clarify the function of artifacts and their creation in practice-led research strategies by focusing on the fields of art and design. This essay provides a critical examination of two artistic endeavors that highlighted my textile objects; each was designed to answer a different research question. These two bodies of work, Seeing Paper and Paper World, were created for my dissertation, Paperness: Expressive Material in Textile Art from the Artist's Perspective. This study examined the relationship between textile art and design, physical qualities of materials, and the freedom of expression. Artifacts and creative outputs situated in the research process play crucial roles in both cases. In a practice-led knowledge creation and communication cycle, artifacts from the arts can function as both inputs and outputs. Artworks and artifacts, both of which can serve as inputs, may motivate the formulation of a research question. In addition, they can provide data that can be mined for insights. In a final report, artifacts can back up claims about the necessity of rethinking the research problem, the author's experience with the creative process, and the report's overall findings. Creative practice in a research setting can produce or enhance knowledge that is intrinsic to and embodied by the practitioner. In the course of your investigation, you may come across references to the artist, the artifact, the creative process, and the culture in which the artifact was created, viewed, and or used.
