Quotes Used:

‘SpY playfully reappropriates urban elements, which replicates or transforms and installs in the street. His work is characterised by careful attention to the context of each piece and a constructive and non-invasive attitude.’ (page 17) – Klanten,R (2010) Urban Interventions: Personal projects in public spaces. Gestalten.

‘The SMSlingshot is a digital intervention device equipped with an ultra high frequency radio module, hacked Arduino board, a laser and some batteries built in a wooden casing. The text messages are typed in a phone sized wooden 3×4 centimetre keypad and displayed on the in build colour display. After a message is finished, it can be ‘shot’ to a target point on the façade just like using a common sling-shot. As the message ‘hits’ the façade a coloured, pixelated splash containing the message appears. The text message will be real-time twittered as well.

The system is made to reclaim urban spaces and omnipresent media screens. With this device, people obtain a tool that allows them to speak up in the same ‘cultural-technological language’ as used by highly developed advertising screens: digital, fluent, complex images”. (Page 56) – Klanten,R (2010) Urban Interventions: Personal projects in public spaces. Gestalten.

‘The performance took place at the main station in Leipzig, a public space that is under the private control of the German railway company, Deutsche Bahn. It is controlled by surveillance cameras and security guards that prevent people from many activities, like begging and sitting on the floor. In response, 500 participants were equipped with inexpensive portable radios and earphones. Using these devices, they could listen to a radio program consisting of a choreography that suggested permitted and forbidden gestures (to beg, to sit on the floor, etc.). The radio ballet was not a demonstration that could have been forbidden, nor was it a mass gathering. Participants could act where they wanted, for example on platforms, stairs, or escalators or in the shopping mall. It was a free association that transformed reception into political intervention.’ (page 196) – Klanten,R (2010) Urban Interventions: Personal projects in public spaces. Gestalten.

‘Berlin-based Susanne Schuricht works in installation art and photography in an effort to address ‘the perception of seeing’. Interaction and the human scale are important aspects of many of her installations’. (Page 164) – Klanten,R (2010) Urban Interventions: Personal projects in public spaces. Gestalten.

‘The artist EVOL transforms electrical panels and concrete chairs in public spaces into miniature prefabricated housing communities. These housing complexes, known as Plattenbauten, are designed using a complex technique with up to seven different layers of stencils. After the Second World War, the government started an ambitious undertaking to create affordable flats for all their workers. These Plattenbauten became and still are a symbol of the socialist regime. These housing projects promised to help make the socialist dream come true by offering a higher standard of living that everyone could afford. An idea that turned into a dysfunctional architectural nightmare.’ (page 22) – Klanten,R (2010) Urban Interventions: Personal projects in public spaces. Gestalten.

‘Papergirl’ is a participatory analogue and non-commercial project in which everyone can contribute something and/or help with the distribution. ‘Papergirl’ is distributed like a newspaper, but not edited or printed like one. Contributions are handed in either by post or in person and are later included in the art rolls. There are no guidelines in terms of its format, subject matter, or quantity. Each roll contains five to ten different works so that each is a unique combination. The art rolls cannot be sold and are to delivered to subscribers. (page 189) – Klanten,R (2010) Urban Interventions: Personal projects in public spaces. Gestalten.

‘Play as you go, bringing play back into the public realm 2008. This project focuses on ways of incorporating incidental play in the public realm using existing furniture and architectural element. By installing swings in London bus stops, for example. Taylor creates a playful environment for all to enjoy’. (page 181) – Klanten,R (2010) Urban Interventions: Personal projects in public spaces. Gestalten.

‘The project aims at pursuing a playful dialogue with communist propaganda memorials by adding a contemporary layer distinct from their original style and function. Although many of the memorials have been thrown into the dustbin of history, they are still visible in streets and parks, The artist tries to show the relationship between the individual and historical machines’. (page 180) – Klanten,R (2010) Urban Interventions: Personal projects in public spaces. Gestalten.

‘This project explores functional urban structures and aims to uncover the possibilities of restricted movement. Passers-by and residents are prompted to reflect on their urban surroundings. Bodies in Urban Spaces is a moving trail performed by a group of dancers. The performers lead the audience through selected parts of public and semi-public spaces. A chain of physical interventions is quickly set up, which only exists temporarily. This allows the viewer to perceive the same space in a new and different way. (page 179) – Klanten,R (2010) Urban Interventions: Personal projects in public spaces. Gestalten.

‘The connection between the boats and the street work is in the impulse to create art that interacts with the world in ways that do not depend upon a protected institutional setting. Getting beyond that original impulse, I think that most human settlements spring up around water and we are creating a microcosm of that.’

‘I have always felt that these boats are an expression of joy and wonder, while at the same time being a map of anxiety. We are making a cabinet of wonders by collecting things we find along the way: seeds, bones, flowers, stories – all manner of things. This impulse is about observing, collecting and sharing beautiful things in the world around us, but there is also an element of the impulse to preserve these things and to pack your whole life onto a couple of hand-made rafts and set sail.’

‘When you approach it by boat it is very literally, a city rising up out of the ocean. The fantastical unlikeliness of this sight is like a swift kick in the heart of everything you ever thought was possible. ….If you could somehow create something which within a glance, changes people’s perceptions of the possible forever, yes, that would be a good thing. That’s what Venice is like for me’ – Lawrence. (2009). Interviews: Swoon. http://arrestedmotion.com/2009/03/interview-swoon-the-swimming-cities-of-serenissima/. Last accessed 6th December 2011

‘In 2008, Downey sprayed green paint on the shopping windows of Berlins historical KaDeWe mall, which the owners reported to the police as an act of vandalism. However, Downey had been contracted by the Lacoste clothing brand (along with 11 other street artists) for an exhibition at KaDeWe celebrating the 75th anniversary of the brand, and he maintained that he was just fulfilling his contract. Die Tageszeitung speculated that the incident might have been a media stunt by Lacoste’ – Unknown. (2011). Brad Downey. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brad_Downey#Career.

‘Following the execution by beheading the severed head was held up by the hair by the executioner. This tradition was not just to show the crowd the head, but also to show the head of the victim the crowd and to it’s own body. Consciousness remains for at least eight seconds after beheading, until the lack of oxygen causes unconsciousness and mercifully death. The heads of Tudor traitors were placed on stakes and displayed in public places such as on the ramparts of castles or such prominent spots like London Bridge.’- Unknown. (2011).
