“Occupy” is a series of two dimensional interventions that address the politics of space. They draw absurd and hypothetical scenarios altering the functionality of surrounding elements in order to shift the viewers attention to the relation with the environment and invite them to act upon it. Those phrases question what kind of reality we aim to build, live, create or recreate.
Through these imaginative suggestions, the notion of space production is re-examined aiming to criticize the segregation of space one experiences according to their social and political position, gender identity, race, etc.

This is an ongoing collaborative project, initially taking place at Journey’s festival, UK and will continue to spread in time and geography as these stickers are distributed to collaborators in different countries.


The scenarios written:

Here is were you feel no fear -- Rest
This is the center of the world -- Occupy
This is the ear of the future -- Tell it a secret
This is the last window of time -- Cross through
Imagine air is freedom -- Inhale until you faint
Imagine you are an ant -- Look up
