Playing with method: Game design as ethnographic research
Sprache des Tagungstitel:
Enacting Innovation featured in the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz (September 2020, together with Sarah Buser, Tomás Montes Massa, Mónica Riki?, Leoni Voegelin, and Laura Zoelzer). It was a participatory performance inspired by social scientific research on ?innovation scripts? ? the recipes followed in dealing with the pressure to prove innovative ability in contemporary organizational life. In the play, these innovation scripts were aesthetically dramatized for the festival audience to act out challenges and conflicts with each other and the technical infrastructures typically employed within such contexts. Enacting innovation attempted at making organizational innovation dynamics ?experienceable? and provoke thinking about power and powerlessness when it comes to steer and interfere with processes of change and renewal.
Judith Igelsböck and Friedrich Kirschner would like to take the presentation of enacting innovation as an opportunity to raise and discuss some of the potentially more transversal issues related to the ambition of playing with method in the social sciences by experimenting with artistic techniques or forming arts-research collectives: What does the fusion with research entail for gaming and playing as an artform? What does it mean to incorporate play into a field of research (such as organizational development), in which playfulness is praised as a key ingredient for being innovative and in which theatrical techniques are also used (for the exploration of team dynamics, for instance)?
