Crowd Theory Adelaide is an ongoing series of international photographic performance events by Simon Terrill, a Samstag Scholar who explores ideas of community and the nature of crowds. For each event, a time and place is specified and people are invited to respond to the site, but their specific actions on-site are left undirected and uncontrolled.

Through this random orchestration of bodies in site-specific venues, Crowd Theory seeks to expand upon accepted definitions and perceptions of what it is that constitutes a ‘community’ and how this converges with the notion and implications of a ‘crowd’.
