Worldmaking as Techné: Participatory Art, Music, and Architecture attempts to outline a practice that challenges the World and how it could be through a kind of future-making, and/or other world making, by creating alternate realties as artworks that are simultaneously ontological propositions. In simplified terms the concept of techné is concerned with the art and craft of making. In particular a kind of practice that embodies the enactment of theoretical approach that helps determine the significance of the work, how it was made, and why. By positioning worldmaking as a kind of techné, we seek to create a discourse of art making as an enframing of the world that results in the expression of ontological propositions through the creation of art-worlds.
