I am a planner-academic: ‘What do artists do?’ As part of planning practice, the role of art is regularly discussed in urban, and increasingly, rural studies. This discussion most commonly focuses on specific artworks (manifest both as objects and processes). That artists commonly produce what we might call ‘organisation works’ (eg. living spaces, galleries, studios, and a myriad of modes of production and distribution) in addition (or instead) of ‘art works’ is well understood in the discourse of arts practice but not regularly accounted for in this urban-rural-development literature. What does this organisational work do? As part of ‘Stretched’, through engagement with art practice I set out to explore what is produced through encounters with and in artistic organisation. My practice in the field takes inspiration from experimental and collaborative anthropology.
