Open prototyping is presented as a conceptual and methodological framework for artistic practice and public participation that bridges the space between technology and society, and contributes to city and technology innovation. The specific concern is with practices which make ideas about the future tangible, and experiment in different configurations of infrastructures, data, situations and people. Many works here are boundary objects, taking place in grey zones between disciplines and sectors. In considering such practices, the paper looks to deepen understanding on the fault lines between art and innovation, and ways in which art can shape the direction of technology development.
