Manual (2013)

Public event

Hosted by Peacock Visual Arts, Aberdeen.

Nov 2013

Manual was a public research event. The event consisted of a series of one-to-one interviews that explore people’s everyday behaviors and habits in public space. Participants were encouraged to talk about their own experiences, routines and preferences within the framework of everyday situations; How do you choose a seat in a restaurant? What do you do in order to feel secure? Does surveillance make you feel safe or watched? Do you take measures to avoid catching infections from other people? Do you have a system for staying safe in public space? How do you act when you run into someone you don’t want to run into? What do you find unacceptable behavior? Do you have a preferred toilet cubicle?

The event was hosted by Peacock Visual Arts and took place at Seventeen 5 – 17 Belmont Street, Aberdeen on November 15th and 16th 2013.

This project was kindly supported by Arts Council England.
