Social Art Practices
Through the use of various strategies including "urban interventions, utopian proposals, guerrilla architecture, "new genre" public art, social sculpture, project-based community practice, interactive media, service dispersals, and street performance."[1] the primary material of social practice is person-to-person exchange, interaction, or participation. These situations, organizations and events can involve various media including photography, video, drawing, text, sound, sculpture, and performance art.  Within the art making process, the practice emphasizes people in relationships to each other and their surroundings, "focusing on engagement and accountability between the audience and the artist"
