This workshop focuses on a visual data production approach developed drawing on ‘the world technique’ in which participants create three-dimensional scenes, pictures or abstract designs in a tray filled with sand and a range of miniature, realistic and fantasy, figures and everyday objects as part of a psychoanalytical therapy session. The workshop explores whether psychoanalytically informed techniques can be applied ethically and effectively as a research tool in qualitative inquiry with adults, young people and children. It will offer an opportunity for participants to try ‘sandboxing’, creating sandscenes with sandboxes and figures. We will discuss experiences of sandboxing and the potentialities and difficulties of applying the technique in participatory, visual and creative research.
