Intermedial Performance as an Instrument of Public Engagement with Richard Windeyer
This working group was an in-depth discussion of intermedial performance as an instrument of public engagement. With lived experience on the one hand and the accumulating ‘bodies’ of archived data on the other, we examined how statistics and informatics are increasingly used to represent and present lives.
We started with chapter 4 of Jocelyn Spence book “Performative Experience Design” (2016).The book is available in electronic form through the U of T Library system http://go.utlib.ca/cat/10417716.If you need a copy, please be in touch!
