The spatial configuration for the Street Omens performance in public generates itself not through defined Architecture but as a carrier or medium for the program. A modular, temporary space, using natural materials evolves, grows and adapts in situ.

This process of assembling is understood as a responsive action according to program, site, symbolic production and participants.
In reminiscence to the overall topic of Land – perceived as blank and only accessible via cultivation, active development of different utilization and disclosure of time.

A Landscape or Landmark (understood as in marking or zoning) – its origin unclear (invited or invented), a scene to pause and listen, to join and define – a performed catalyst.
The generated spatial patterns and modules of cultivation and history will neither be left of destroyed but rather passed on to a defined community after the performance.
