The Art of Decision is an interactive multimedia exhibition that encourages the individual to realize their significance in relation to political decision-making. The exhibition consists of a series of rooms that immerse visitors in situations that invite them to reconstruct their perception of political structures and political involvement. The project particularly addresses those who feel excluded from the political process.

The Art of Decision is the result of an extensive body of research conducted at Trinity College, Dublin, by PhD researchers Fionnuala Conway and Jane Williams, under the supervision of Dr. Linda Doyle and Dr. Maryann Valiulis.

The Art of Decision experience

The Art of Decision offers visitors an opportunity to travel through 9 interactive rooms that present opinions and ideas about power and decision-making from a variety of research participants in an engaging, theatrical way. Contributors’ ideas are presented alongside statistical information in a meaningful and innovative fashion using sound, film and interactive installations. The technology will also facilitate visitors to contribute their ideas to Art of Decision as it evolves in the space and in future research. Learn more about the exhibits.
