InterAction consists of projects and articles that consider how participatory interactions can occur, how new stakeholders are introduced, and how the relationships between people and their environment impact politics. What is the spatial agency of the individual in relation to the pluralistic collective?
FAction situates a particular constituency and interrogates how these groups act internally as well as interface with other groups. These articles and projects foreground the commonality of the subject to consider specific forms of action. In what way is the formation and emergence of sub-collectives informed and empowered by design?
