Tranformation of Urban Space
Armed with little more than chalk, labels or posters, I will transform an urban space into work to inspire the public to engage with each other, and the world around them.
Pleasure, destruction, growth, pain and healing are concepts intrinsically related to urban spaces, rituals, dynamics of consciousness development, knowledge, emotional intelligence, personal awareness, well-being and education.
Space is no longer measured by a Cartesian definition. We need to build, talk and spread other concepts that are not represented within the power structures. To open up other, intrinsic, porous spaces that mark opportunities for change, create or represent other worlds, other futures. Architecture is porous:
A fundamental dimension of inhabiting is the appropriation of space through imaginary inhabitant.
We want to paint a black wall with messages seeming as posters where messages of empowerment, reflection, motivation, creation around the space we inhabit were written. Others were gaps that allowed the inhabitants themselves to write about their imaginary in order to give voice to all those issues that often do not appear in the debates at the politicians' tables.
The goal is empower them in order to give voice: It is necessary to make "inhabiting" a creative act of appropriation. In short, the environment can only be a collective good and its right is not simply one of access, but the right to modify it based on desires and dreams, experiences and life experiences. The right to remake ourselves by creating a qualitatively different environment should be one of the most precious human rights.
