Picnics in Awkward Spaces – Closing Picnic

Existing in space and living in it (moving, socializing) is the primal defining attribute of living beings.  Space, and how we define it, decorate it is defines our society.

Such society today forces us into pre-defined, boxed-in and regulated movements and activities. Hours of operation, property, endless lawns, deforestation, golf courses, shopping malls, curfews, and the basic landscape of city architectures (from buildings to benches) define our territoriality.
Human beings now find ourselves in the awkward position of living where we are not welcome, do not belong; the ‘apartheid’ of polluted environments, unkempt (or overkempt) spaces,commercial dominance, sanitization, devastated spaces and industrial wastelands at once define us and oppress us. Thus, in the we are doing what is natural:  Having our picnics in awkward spaces!  Welcome to the infringement picnic area.
