Printed Thesis Information:


Through critically informed practical research, this thesis explores modes of participation that it is possible to support and enhance in public participative events. Using a series of lab experiments, to tease out strands of influence to participation, it examines how these affect both participation and a sense of participation for the individual participant. Using these experiments as a basis for a further meta‑work, it then examines what these structures and rules may mean for the creation of future participative works and further study of the participant experience.
