This is My City, After All

Urban space is filled with words and visual messages that together create a vivid conversation. But is there a way for ordinary citizens to legally participate in this conversation?

A series of three interventions, ‘This is my city, after all’, ‘I want to see something else too’ and ‘Home lights’ reveals and questions the unwritten rules and invisible structures of the public space, searching for normal peoples’ means to contribute to their local visual environment.
