Title CARRIAGE: cultural transports and transformations of a socially-engaged public art practice
Author(s) Douglas, M
Year 2010
Abstract Through a socially-engaged public art practice I explore interests in mobility, hospitality and agency. I have conducted a collection of journey-based projects that explore modes of transport as mediums for public art practice, that mobilise social relations through a play with hospitality conventions, and that perform tactical ways of operating with space, time, movement and people to open up possibilities for dynamic urban experiences. My practice investigates how public art might engender aesthetic and social formations, transportations and potential transformations. The momentum gathered by this research suggests that a socially-engaged public art practice can afford multiple culturally resonant forms of carriage.
