"The best way to plan for downtown is to see how people use it today; to look for its strengths and to exploit and reinforce them. There is no logic that can be superimposed on the city; people make it, and it is to them, not buildings, that we must fit our plans."
Jane Jacobs, Downtown is For People (1958)

Ana Teresa Fernández, Borrando la Frontera, performance, 2011.The surreal act of erasing a border is documented in the short, Borrando la Frontera. A woman in stilettos and a black cocktail dress scales a 30 ft ladder on the sandy beach of Tijuana, bringing the sky back between Mexico and the US, as she paints the dividing fence blue. The film depicts the peace offering of creating the illusion of a “hole in the wall.” The protagonist becomes more visible as the wall starts to disappear into the blue sky. Her attire, the little black dress reflects the notion of prosperity in the US, moreover the funerary symbol of luto, the Mexican tradition of wearing black for a year after a death. Mourning those who have died in attempts of crossing this border to prosper.—Woodstock Film Festival

Open frame with attached pen installed inside a quiet pedestrian tunnel under a train line in Telopea, Sydney. A few locations close by to follow. The first line is mine to get things going (I covered names and numbers lower down)
Frames still fixed in place will be removed when filled and the results/ developments will be up on Miguel Marquez (inside) in a couple of weeks.

"Public space is thus nothing but physical space allocated to the political activity of urban citizens. Therefore free access to public space is considered one of the main determinants of democracy."
