Abstract

Adopting a complexity theory perspective, the paper looks at the role of collaboration and at the impact of place, audiences and activities have on the artistic projects presented at a street art festival in UK (FUSE Festival, Medway). Using cognitive maps we explore changes, difficulties, unexpected collaborations, audiences, feedbacks and a variety of external influences. The results highlight how artists evolve, change and learn while creating and presenting their work.
