Late this afternoon I made a flag from found objects and erected it at the highest point of the wasteland.
This quick territorial intervention relates to a past project ‘Duplex‘ where I introduced an arts community to the urban wasteland in Glasgow by providing visitors with a chance to explore the land’s particularities, ecology, users, and future potential. An aspect of this project was making temporary signage and interpretation tools from found materials. One of the signs was ‘Twin Cities distance sign’ showing the various cities that Glasgow is officially twinned with and the detailing the distance of each city from the the location of the sign.
