How, when and where, under whcih conditions and follwoing which  can we consider performative practices and installations as experimental systems that generate artistic artifacts as epistemic objects? Where is the significance of a wide variety of research questions and topics in art research that seesaw between outer space and inner world?

Reacting to changing social conditions is a basic mechanic of art. It uses emotio-political effects for the purpose of enlightenment. Here, it is helpful to refer to a conceptual comparison of the theory of game mechanics in narrative text as a model for principles of artistic research.

Through analyzing EIGEN-MECHANICS OF ART we will devlop a expanded concpetion of participative research and question introduced methods of artistic research — claiming a new school of Ludic research principles as source for an infinite number of further artsirtic research practices.
