Space project poster
The inspiration form Foucault's"Of Other Spaces: Utopias and Heterotopias"In the observation,I found the relationships between space consumer and place producer,which can combine with space strategy and tactic.In reality,there are so many invisible rules formulated by the producer.In spite of the producer change premier plan according to people’s behavior,it still cannot achieve completely.Space has thousands of possibilities that people can use.The whole project explore possibilities of space.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Every place has boundaries,which allow people to appreciate far and near.People star to participate behaviors,which rely on the place.Running through the whole project,I am interested in how social experiences overlap with and co-produce the city elements of our life.Then, basic on the methods of research space in London,I use multi-methods to catch structures.Such as sounds recording, prototyping and videotaping .These structures and processes come together to establish the status quo of different places.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
I produced the booklet to make question people, how many possibilities to use the facilities and place in the space. Anyone can write down and share with other people. so I can collect the information to produce a network about people using space.

The research divide into three parts,-history,-theory,-practice. the Paternoster Square is my research and observation place. So firstly, I need to do history research about geographical structure and people activities. Then to do theoretical research according to Michel de Certeau's, Foucault's and so on thought. Finally, I use multi-methods to catch structures.Such as photography, prototyping and videotaping.
I create the special spot in the street, which according the real space structure. It is difficult to find summary and reflection of people's activities upon changes over time. It is also difficult to understand the space theory connected with the reality.
