This is the fourth episode of an NCRM “in conversation” series that focuses upon the emerging field of material methods. In this video, Sophie Woodward is in conversation with Ian Cook, who introduces political Lego as a method for critically engaging with consumption and follow-the-thing methods. Ian is a cultural geographer and situates political Lego within geography. He explores how political Lego is a material method, with an emphasis upon the potentials of creative practices and ‘play’ for engaging with politics. This video is of interest for anyone wanting to engage with material and creative methods.
