The result of a workshop collaboration between students from CSM and Notre Dame University in Lebanon, where the brief required us to somehow have a positive temporary effect on a given environment in one day. Our group were given a location along the Thames where there were tourists, residents, hospital visitors and workers. Because people were particularly diverse, we decided to make passers-by more aware of each other by asking them to add to our human installation with a short explanation of why they were there. While many came up with more creative messages instead, the interaction between people ended up bringing the awareness of each other that we were after!
