Resumé

This paper elaborates on the integration of academic and artistic methodologies within the field of art and technology. The term art and technology refers to a recognized research field and to higher education programmes, such as the BA program Art and Technology at Aalborg University. Art and technology artefacts range from dynamic art installations or applicable technologies (also outside of the art field).
This paper’s reflection is based on Koestler’s idea of bisociation (blending) of different thinking and action matrices being the foundational and unconscious mechanism of creation and discovery. Koestler proposes the concept of bisociation for academic discoveries and artistic revealings alike by looking at the results of this creation (work of art, scientific discovery). However, my question is, whether the blending of academic and artistic discourses and methodologies––being a second order bisociation––can be used as a conceptual model for art and technology as a methodological field with its own type of artefacts?
On the basis of own experience with higher education pedagogy (exemplified by a concrete pedagogical design), the article investigates the bisociation of matrices and codes by extrapolating from existing descriptions of relevant academic and artistic methodologies and their key assumptions such as artistic genius and knowledgeable scientist and tacit and explicit knowledge.
The interplay between existing theories and between theories and the author’s own experience with and design of teaching designs aims at the description of a methodology and a heuristic for drafting concrete teaching designs.
