An installation in the form of a wooden tribune with places for lying. The idea grew out of the spirit of protest against "defensive architecture" which puts restrictions on using public space and excludes active participation. Lying in public spaces has become the most disturbing and stigmatized activity when done in public. On the other hand, when exercised in private sphere, lying supports relaxation and reflexion and we do spend a third of our lives in horizontal position! The project was created as a part of the ARCHI-BOX cycle curated by Michał Duda from Museum of Architecture in Wroclaw.
