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.

Thomas Street, The Digital Hub, Dublin 8.
It is free and open to the public, by appointment, from May 9 -
