Dr Tim Stott will present a paper at the 2017 annual College Art Association conference in New York. His paper, part of the panel Playing Art History/Gaming the Museum is titled Playing with Loose Parts: The Design 12 Course and Pre-Digital Interactive Environments. It investigates historical connections between art, play and interactivity through a study of the Design 12 course established by British sculptor Simon Nicholson in 1966, and will consider what current attempts by arts institutions to build interactive game environments still might learn from the pre-digital ludic strategies proposed by Design 12 and those environmental designers who have followed its example.
