RE-ACT

RE-ACT

We move, interact and perform within a space due to specific social constructs and expectations. The clothes that we wear, the architectural structures we have to manoeuvre through and even the way in which we interact with others - these are all engineered social systems which rely on the fact that we are constantly under self-surveillance. We will deconstruct the 'constructed' spatial practices of our time, counteract or make an awareness of the institutional systems in which we live and possibly, just for one day, challenge the problematic theories of produced space. This performance seeks to create a day of ‘happenings’ on Harrington Street in which we create, what we are calling, a ‘production’. We will ultimately be asking passer byes to interact with each other and the space in ways that differ from their day-to-day routine. In this way we are questioning the performative actions of city users and subverting what is seen as the norm. #michaeliscityproject2014 This intervention is produced as part of 2014 Michaelis School of Fine Art 2nd year City Project course.
