Placement is a transient, site-specific project about the interaction of people and places. We define places broadly — they can be abstract ideas of places (e.g., the beach, downtown, public benches) or physical geographical locations (e.g., Lafayette Park in Detroit). Within that, our interest is specific: it is to call attention to the spontaneous aesthetic decisions people make when they use a place. In each case, we aim to collaborate with people who know each site well.
Our first project location is Lafayette Park in Detroit, USA.
