The notion of experiment is increasingly attracting a certain cachet within and beyond academia. Perhaps what is most striking about this flurry of experiments is that they are no longer understood to be the domain of the sciences, nor of a narrowly exclusive range of avant-garde aesthetic practices. My own research has sought to bear witness to this ever-increasing plurality of experimenting, a ‘something/happening’ that is gathering force and gaining traction through diverse energies. Crucially, I have sought to position myself as both investigator of how this experimental inflection is taking place and, in a very real sense through my own experimenting, to become a vector of the inflection itself.
