Temporary site specific installations in empty spaces and abandoned courtyards in XianYuKou district in Beijing. The neighbourhood is under threat of demolition and people are expected to leave it. In this situation of uncertainty for many of the local inhabitants, the project works through different approaches and media. Graphics patterns to decorate the public walls, redefinition of public spaces using existing materials founded on site, insertions of little elements to be used as playground, interactive installations with colours and sounds will define a series of “moments” rich of meaning in which to intensify the vital productivity of everydayness, according to the definition by Henri Lefebvre (Theory of Moments in “La Somme et le Reste”, 1959).

The Wolf Man. Wolfspark Werner Freund is a wolf sanctuary spread over 25 acres in western Germany. It is home to 29 wolves — six distinct packs hailing from Europe, Siberia, Canada, the Arctic, and Mongolia. Researcher Werner Freund, 79, a former German paratrooper, established the sanctuary in 1972 and has raised more than 70 animals there over the last 40 years. He acquired the wolves as cubs from zoos or animal parks and has reared them mostly by hand. Werner has also taken to living closely with his wolves, behaving as an alpha male to earn their acceptance and respect. via
Peter Fuss an artist known for his edgy and sharp attitude, illegally posts his art on billboards to portray the social and political issues around him.
Not afraid to speak his mind on politics or the relationship between religion and art. Peter Fuss fleshes out his work with deep meaning and a simplistic result. Entitled ‘This Means Peace ‘ his work was first placed in Gdansk, Poland in January 2008 at a railway station. The two billboards, use his signature minimalist typography and feature Arabic writing with an explained translation underneath that reads “This Means Love” and “This Means Peace.”. Fuss’ message was that people should think carefully about the widespread beliefs after the 9/11 attacks that all that is Arab is dangerous. He questions the stereotypes that shackle a group of people and challenges it with the thought provoking use of typography.
