installation focuses on documenting the city as a result of communal interaction
with "quantifiable returns" (Helen Walker) via a database. It
manifests itself in an architectural setting which establishes a forum,
a solid space charged flexibly with (empiric) information - with reference
to Robert Venturi´s idea of the "decorated shed". The
notion of the unplanned city and its unofficial side is conveyed in its
work-in-progress nature, reflecting the idea of urban "sprawl"
(Aron Betsky). A graphic language of charts and diagrams with their official
iconography of the office, the language of authority, quality control
and process-alignment, transformed into a container of participatory processes
assembled in a non-linear narrative.
