The title of this paper is taken from an address by the former director of the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) in Dublin to graduating fine art students, in which he acknowledged the unique pressures that bear down on art students: ‘many of the great artists were only comprehensible long after they died; you however, have to be comprehensible by June”. This issue of comprehensibility, is particularly problematic in respect of research in the creative arts.
