constructing the ecosystem
derelict Public Lavatory . 1991
Making of this project has principally been through the involvement of artists.
However the strategy has not been to curate art shows but to progressively evolve
with the generation of social activity and development of different cultural functions.
The process is ongoing and is always dependent on the involvement of new participants.
To do this the project has to operate on 3 levels and essentially involves the making of 3 self-reliant ecologies:
1 A Communication environment (Media)
2 A financial environment (Economics)
3 The built environment (Architecture)
1, 2 and 3 work together and through their exchange produce the Public Life project.
Sustainability requires Public Life to evolve on all 3 levels; the activity it self-generates is the key to this end.
