The found matter and I, are working in situ. We gather a presence, memory and lack of control together with imaginary stories, historical cartography for increasing speculative visions in daily life. That co-creation uses a range of media, including performative sculpture, objects, performance, situations, walks, storytelling, audio and text.

We read urban public space as the scenography of human traces. I place myself as a guide, archaeologist and mediator between physical, found elements and self-organized public space. With participatory experiences, relational aesthetics and sticky, flexible materials, I register the traces. This method is mapping invisible details in urban space and exploring public space through our senses. I believe in the power of otherness and co-creation as a magic tool for real shifts.
