    The practice of research through art and design can pose challenges in terms of evaluating contributions, formalizing methodologies and generating extensible principles. Creating a middle layer of critique and interpretation between the generated artifacts of research through art and design and the foundation of general theory provides a viable space for exploration. We propose integrating artifact description, process documentation and participatory annotation as a useful approach in this intermediate critical area. We introduce a multimodal documentation framework for capturing, annotating and presenting the activities, processes and generated artifacts of research through art and design practice. We describe findings from our experience documenting a series of research through design workshops, and illustrate our annotation and presentation approach in the form of a curated exhibition.
