In this position statement for the Participatory Design Conference (PDC’16) Workshop “Ting: Making publics through provocation, conflict and appropriation,” I explain my personal motivation and rationale for researching into the nexus of design and politics. I use my experience running as an opportunity candidate for the Queensland Greens in the 2015 Queensland State Elections as a way to provide rich context to illustrate aspects of what it means to be a designer as politician and a politician as designer. I reflect on this experience by discussing three themes: making politics as designers; making publics as politicians, and; making provocations as artists.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
