DEPT. Out There @ Drugo More, Rijeka
Exploring the invitations of material signs to act in the public space.
How does it work?
DEPT. (Describing the Present Tense) is a participative research project aimed at describing the present conditions of the environments we inhabit.
DEPT.'s research protocol is nourished and supported by the active collaboration of local communities, people and associations with which it collaborates.
From November 14th to November 19th, DEPT. will be hosted by Drugo More to run a series of activities aiming at exploring the question “what is the public space of Rijeka asking us to do?”.
We invite you to participate in collectively answer to this question and to be part of our open laboratory.
We would like to collect images of Rijeka's streets and identify in them the messages, inscriptions, signs and objects, that invites us “to do something”, “to perform actions”, “to imagine an elsewhere”. We are looking for people living in Rijeka that are interested in participating in discussing, narrate and recontextualise these images.
We will start by asking you to provide us with the start and endpoint of a path, a stroll, a promenade that you usually do in the city of Rijeka, we will then retrieve the images from Google Street View and processed them with some image recognition algorithms. In this way, we are going to produce a personalised catalogue of signs and we will use it together do discuss the role these signs have in your ordinary environment.
No prior knowledge or skill is required. We just need a little bit of your time to pause, observe and describe.
