Placement is a transient, site-specific project about the interaction of people and places. We define places broadly — they can be abstract ideas of places (e.g., the beach, downtown, public benches) or physical geographical locations (e.g., Lafayette Park in Detroit). Within that, our interest is specific: it is to call attention to the spontaneous aesthetic decisions people make when they use a place. In each case, we aim to collaborate with people who know each site well.
Our first project location is Lafayette Park in Detroit, USA. Our second project location is the Holiday Inn, Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina.
“Dear Rockaway,” is an oral history project designed to increase social connectedness across the peninsula by activating public space with words from members of the Rockaway community. It is part of Design/Relief, an AIGA/NY special initiative.
