Art projects that occur in the public realm – with flawed, beautiful people and a complex multitude of interconnected organisations – cannot be explained in a simple, linear narrative. A participant will, for instance, experience the project differently than an organiser, while a funder does not take the same route as the artist. Some of us will be highly involved, others only tangentially, fleetingly. Any participatory art project therefore will have many strands and paths that are followed at different times and speeds, but they are all linked and knotted together as part of a singular project. It’s like an underground rail network, with different trains, railway tracks and interchange stations, but all part of the same system.
