Photography Flash Mob – Uncommon Land – seeks Participants

Uncommon Land is looking for participants for its upcoming flash mob taking place in a surprise location in Dublin city centre on the 19th May, 2012.

Uncommon Land is an urban intervention led by artist Eilis Murphy, which takes the form of a flash mob. The project explores how public space is used and controlled and seeks to question the subdivisions that exist within cities, highlighting the invisible borders between public and private streets: pseudo-public areas.

Once you have registered your interest by email - [email protected] - instructions will be sent to you regarding the time and place and what to bring.

Documentation of this flashmob will form part of HACK THE CITY exhibition, running from 21st June – 8th September 2012 in the Science Gallery, Dublin. This exhibition rethinks cities from the ground up through the spirit and philosophy of the hacker ethos – to bend, mash-up, tweak and cannibalise our city systems, to create possibilities, illustrate visionary thinking and demonstrate real-world examples for sustainable urban futures.
