Using multiple voices in research

An extract from my Research Plan:

The research will include academic, theoretical, distanced, writing styles as well as subjective narratives and storytelling.  As part of the research I would like to play with how these different writing styles (or collective voices) can be incorporated into a PhD thesis – how they can compete for space and attention; agree and disagree; ‘expand institutional boundaries as well as evade them’.  Through the research I would like to explore if these academic negotiations share something with live/work artists negotiating the boundaries between their domestic and artistic work. And if so, what it means to meet research subjects with my own forms of research.
