SUMMARY : This paper reflects upon the separation between academic and artistic practices by considering personal discomfort, academic practices and the disciplinary boundaries of creativity. While attention within the social sciences to embodiment, emotion and the more-thanrepresentational has sparked efforts to present research differently, the conventions of social scientific practices have limited the circulation of new methods and genres of writing. Drawing upon theories of practice, I suggest that the standardization of social science around specific sets of elements including understandings of methodological rigor and critique complicates the circulation of more creative offerings. By taking up the example of 'cultural probes', which have moved from design research to the social sciences, I show how the circulation of creative methods needs to be considered in relation to that of values, understandings and goals as well. The paper ends with a playful attempt to circulate new ideas by presenting five 'socio-art machines'.  [Go to the full record in the library's catalogue]
