Visual research that is prevalent in the ethnography study is essentially the combination of arts-based and arts-informed methods in the visual art field. However, up to the present time, there is no standard way on how to conduct a visual research. Kolb’s Experiential Learning Model (ELM) on the other hand is a systematic model that derived from the education discipline which focuses on learning through experience. Kolb’s ELM has proven to be effective that it has been adopted by many researchers in various fields due to its versatility. Therefore this study seeks to examine the potential of applying Kolb’s ELM into visual research through three selected batuh narit (rock carvings) of Kelabit Highlands as case studies. The visual research was separated into four phases according to Kolb’s ELM which are concrete experience, reflective observation, abstract conceptualization, and active experimentation. Several methods include sensory ethnography, enhanced blended observational method and visual analysis were also used in this study. Ultimately, a Visual Research Model was generated through the application of Kolb’s ELM into the visual research case studies. Researcher sees the potential of Visual Research Model to be developed further by conducting more studies with similar applications of the Visual Research Model into other visual researches in order to improve the new existing model.
