Bringing practice and theory together, this research investigates the influences that public space has over play by placing the influence of specific places at the centre of play design. In order to investigate how to promote playful interactions in public spaces, a series of site-specific simple interactive exhibits have been created and tested with groups of players. These players have then shared their experiences of play, interactivity and space. The results of this play testing are used to inform the process of play design. In doing so, this research aims to highlight the social, performative, and artistic potential that exists at the intersection between space and play and in doing so, deepen our understanding of space as a facet of play and expression.
