Martindale, Sean (2010) curbed concepts. Masters thesis, OCAD University.

Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Martindale, Sean
Abstract:

Outlined is a series of interventions created to activate public and semi-public spaces. This supporting document touches on the social and environmental impetus for these efforts. I present a sketch of the theory and methodology behind my project; I draw from relevant concepts such as Guy Debord’s theory of the spectacle and Chantal Mouffe’s agonistic politics, and explore the agency of public space. Over the course of my project, I have conceived of ways to re-envision materials, spaces and infrastructures otherwise neglected or misappropriated. The interventions that compose this project can be seen as open and ongoing experiments. These works present possibilities and
provisional alternatives.
