Abstract Visual arts practice reflects cultural identity in a particular time and place and is seen as a valid but subjective way to interpret social belonging. As researchers into identity move into using audio-visual techniques to represent their findings, strategies are developing on how to integrate surveys and questionnaires into creative works. Similarly, artists are using research data to share ideas with a broader audience beyond academic specialisation.

Two Darwin-based arts practitioners provide examples of integrating their research into identity as film segments. They suggest that, as research moves into the public domain, visual arts will increasingly be used to clarify and consolidate explorations into individual and cultural identity. This work draws on cultural theory to raise profound questions about how research into identity can be interpreted and shared through auditory and visual art practice. Intrinsically, the authors raise discussion about the artificial delineation of cultural research and art and seek to extend the broader recognition of this type of research output.
