What does it mean to work in the public space? In a place where I do not feel at home? How can it improve my working process?

The project is about my personal practice and way of working. After a deep and introspective analysis, I tried to force myself to work in the outdoor space, in a chaotic environment. I wanted to see and understand how thick my bubble can be. My safe space; the one that I create around me to feel secure in which all the dynamics are known.

Through my process I have understood that sometimes these very well-know dynamics become limitations and in order to see the unknown I had to test their being a limitation. Public spaces can be much more chaotic and less comfortable then the space I used to work in, and that became my motto.

Nowadays, public spaces are not much used as a space of public interaction, they don’t belong people. They are mainly experienced as a space of passage. Trying to work in a space that isn’t made for it, it means to open up to a working practice that keeps this use in mind. The new experience of interaction with the changed environment pushed me to physically create new tools to master the new practice. I created objects with what the environment had to offer, found materials, and this also forced me to cooperate and share the process with other users of the public space.
