Abstract

In this paper, I focus on disclosures by one participant as enabled by a kind of artistic
practice that I term “participation cartography.” By using “participation cartography” as a
framework for the analysis of Running Stitch (2006), a piece by Jen Southern (U.K.) and
Jen Hamilton (Canada), I demonstrate that disclosures by participants in this practice are to
be seen as a form of self-mapping that positions the self in relation to a given performance
space. These self-positionings present the self in spatio-temporal terms and by means of
performative narratives that re-define the subject from an isolated individual into a
participant within an unfolding live process.
