game art, artistic research, publications

An emanation of arts based research is the development and investigation of the potential of artistic research methodologies. The LUDIC METHOD embraces theoretical sciences, scientific experiments, public performances, game art  and the mis en scène of discourse and science in installations and performance lectures, in short play as art in action research.

In this way the arts practice and theory of playfulness informs the emergence of a new methodology of research, intervention and participation in society through the arts of play, which is coined as Ludics, as an original outcome of the thesis Ludics for a Ludic Society. The Art and Politics of Play. Published online 2010:
