PRACTICABLE Artwork as a playground

Practicable - From Participation to Interaction in Contemporary Art ; from this work published by Samuel Bianchini and Erik Verhagen at MIT Press, how can we revisit the notion of “Practicable” which, in French, is also a noun, meaning the physical medium in which action can take place in theatre or sport? How can we consider as a “playground” artwork involving the physical participation of its public? How can we consider artwork as a catalyst, established based on a set of practical, aesthetic and conceptual practices that we can play – like an instrument – with which we can measure ourselves – like in a game – where it is a matter of experiencing, perhaps even being challenged, to possibly beat them?
