Inspiration to Order is a paper based on the findings of an artists’ seminar, first presented in January 2005 at the Theorising Creativity Symposium, University of West of England. The accompanying exhibition addressed one of the central aims of the research: to create ways to investigate, document and publish both artists’ processes and outcomes. A pilot study to test methodologies of documentation asked whether 'new' technologies provide useful methods for documenting artists' processes, and what role a researcher plays in documenting artists' processes.
