Writing in public space

Writing in Public Space, Julie Shiels

In a globalised world, cities are rapidly becoming homogeneous spaces. At first glance difference is disappearing, we see the same cars, same buildings, same franchises and hear the same noises.

This work expands the exploration of the ideas in a project called I love St Kilda. That is, that the marks on the pavement and the minutiae found in the streets can tell you where you are and provide clues for deciphering the narratives of the cultural terrain.

The site also documents a series of ephemeral works that are surprise interventions in the streets.
