INFRASTRUCTURE #2


There are several types of infrastructure that are significant in a practice such as this, which aims to envisage systems, enact relations and challenge hegemonies.

The conceptual architecture of FREE*SPACE is supported by a digital infrastructure (in the form of web platforms such as this one) which logs the research actions and activities but also potentially performs aspects of the work through algorithmic languages.

The research is also supported by a theoretical infrastructure, particularly in relation to the nature of critical socially engaged practice and the challenges which that poses to practitioners.

Further, the research is under-girded by a relational infrastructure, made up of communities of practice, friendships and alliances with other like-minded practitioners.
