Now Open Free Parking, 2015; What Pipeline, Detroit, MI
The urban construction site is an ever-changing still life. Billboards, construction sites and parking lots accessorise the city and transform quotidian operations. In this chronic tableau public space is a moldable terrain for unexpected uses, applications and conditions – a parking lot of transitory eclecticism. Now Open Free Parking vacillates between art and service provision, extending the exhibition space to the city. It works against typical distinctions between public art and publicity, design and propaganda. Accessorizing the city with billboards, functional urban coding aggregates quotidian operations to affected activities.
