Paul will talk about a couple of ongoing projects including “Reserved For Loitering” part of an ongoing project called “How To Loiter”, which seeks to re-imagine loitering by creating sites for loitering and rethinking it through a Public Service Announcement style campaign.
Reserved For Loitering is part of an ongoing project called How To Loiter, which seeks to re-imagine loitering by creating sites for loitering and rethinking it through a Public Service Announcement style campaign. This temporary public art project will include signs, banners, commercials and an online store. My intent with this project is twofold in aiming not only to change the public perception about loitering, but also to encourage purposeful action while loitering. This project will start in St. Louis, MO, before moving on to various communities across the United States. To bring this project to your town or city please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
