urban action
as open source

פעולה עירונית כקוד פתוח




Awareness can Make the Change

Informal actions driven by the perception of personal responsibility, and direct intervention by users and passersby in the public space.

שיטות פעולה א-פורמליות המונעות מתפיסת אחריות אישית ומיישמות התערבות ישירה של משתמשים ועוברי האורח במרחב הציבורי.

StreetWise + StreetVoice = StreetVis

Urban Design + Urban Action = Social Hacktivism

עיצוב עירוני + פעולה עירונית (אמנות + אקטיביזם) = האקטיביזם חברתי.

המרחב הציבורי + פוטנציאל ההתנגדות = עצמה אזרחית.
