Thinking aloud, is the creation of an artwork only worth instigating if there is something at stake? If so, when working in a participatory context can risks be taken, as the outcomes no only affect the artist but all of those who voluntarily collaborate.
Building risk into the design of a project is not something I had considered very carefully before entering into a participatory process, the question of will they won’t they want to play? Has felt enough of a risk in itself. It’s only now having instigated a number of actor focused studio sessions over a six month period, that it am thinking of what risk taking might mean in this context.
