Ricardo Basbaum is an artist and writer whose practice is an investigation of how art might serve as both a platform and mediating device for articulating sensorial experience, sociability and language. Known for setting up participatory encounters, his works often issue an invitation to viewers to engage with and respond to systems of symbols and rules that are embedded in scripts, diagrams, maps and games.
