Description

Our project removes gates/fences from the public spaces of Peru to transform them into artefacts inviting people to interaction. These ‘security’ elements cum segregation devices are thus turned into benches, playground games, soccer goals, and so forth in an effort to re-channel all of the time, energy, and money expended in building barriers by breathing new meaning and life into their wrought materials. The artefacts are presented as a playground, to invite us to interact with each other, to relearn, through games for young and old alike, that we can generate new social contracts. Some of these artefacts are rocker benches that require another person as a counterweight for comfortable use.

We respond to the invitation with an action/reflection, by using a local problem to take on a global challenge.
