?The work of capturing this elusive quality that cities produce and make legible, and the work of making public space in this in-between zone, is not easily executed. I can?t help but think that the making of art is part of the answer ? whether ephemeral public performances and installations or more lasting types of public sculpture, whether site-specific / community-based art, or nomadic sculptures that circulate among localitites. Architecture is also central here??
