Diverting the public space
We are entangled with the spaces around us. Public spaces define us. They enable us and limit us : they make us who we are. In times of ecological turmoil, are our spaces changing fast enough with us? Do they adapt (us) well to the new chaotic climates of the Earth? Or do they keep us trapped in the values and practices of an old, fossil fueled and consumerist way of life?
How can we make ourselves and the people around us aware of the inequality in public space and how can we redefine them and propose another or a better public space? By taking the neighborhood as our rehearsal space we can create the work on the spot, develop it and adjust it while receiving feedback and input from people on the street.
