Description of campaign/project

Fences define a perceptual edge between public and private lands. When these fences deform, this edge is thickened.

fencePOCKET is designed to realize new public space by facilitating the occupation of these fencescape deviations.

fencePOCKET uses reclaimed tarp to realize new public space within fencescape deviations, allowing others to create gardens, benches and freestores where only a bent fence currently exists.

This is about spreading love by beautifying and placemaking in our public streets.

We use visual communication within a language of commonly-found materials. It is a communication based in color and positioning, not in a verbal language.

We are creating a new place in a public space, one that can contribute to community-building. By utilitizing the chainlink fence as a garden or free store, a new meeting place emerges to foster further communications.

I learned that determination and compromise are essential to the completion of any project.
