For the Sake of Argument

Debate and discussion exists all around us, in every facet of life, from the Houses of Parliament and lecture halls to the pub and the dinner table. In every conversation people bring their own experiences, histories, beliefs and opinions to play and, as a result the perception of the discussion is subtly different. When these spheres collide, through the medium of dialogue, they engender creativity, allow for the exchange of ideas and broaden horizons.

My project explores the unique spaces created by conversation. This study has resulted in the creation of platforms to allow a space and method of engaging and interacting in a dialogue with others. Ultimately, the knowledge gained by my work will enable the production of mediators and facilitators for discussion.

These objects encourage the vocalisation and development of individually held ideas and opinions through exposure to those of the collective.
