'My personal role as provocateur is one of practicality and the necessities that go behind a successful public artwork. I want to push the participants knowledge and test their abilities in understanding the elements behind this success. I will do this in a forum that questions their understanding of subjectivity and content through the choice of site, scale, use of materials and embodied meanings, that pushes them on the hard lines of budget and how much they really think things cost-the importance of budgeting. I'll also emphasise the importance of working collaboratively- whether that’s with other artists, festivals, site crew, industry members related to their fabrication or an organisation that may want support or they want to seek support from'
Ed is on the Situate Assessment and Planning Panel, and will be joining the 2018 Arts Lab as a Provocateur
