Deconstruction by Mike Hewson

"A large-scale digital print installation on the elevated walkway spanning between the active Ballantyne’s building and the red-zone The Crossing building. When standing at a particular vantage point on Colombo St the artwork visually deletes the walkway, while from other locations the viewer can distort their interpretation of the work as they move around the structure. The sky covering the structure references changing aesthetic of the CBD as the last of the damaged buildings are removed. The block of blue also acts a visual disconnect between the humming operations of the ReStart/Ballantyne’s precinct and the silence of the red-zone awaiting rejuvenation.”

- - STAIRWAY CINEMA - -
Stairway Cinema is the third major installation by OH.NO.SUMO. Our ongoing goal is to experiment with architecture and the way it can engage with the public in unique and exciting ways. This project takes inspiration from the site and its inhabitants. The intersection of Symonds Street and Mount Street is a place of ‘hard waiting’. Bus stops and laundromats create a hard-scape of poor space for social interaction. Members of the public retreat individually into the media offered on their mobile phones. This in turn results in greater separation and dislocation from an existing community that is waiting to be activated. A community must be linked not only virtually but also physically. 
Stairway Cinema offers a very simple programmatic response to recognise and counter this larger issue. Short movies previously shared online, are projected for the public to enjoy, offering similar media to that sought out on their phones. The individual experience is exchanged for the communal and social, leading to a shared, fun and architecturally framed experience. Movies are collected from internet recommendations that have been shared by the public through social media. The public curate this virtual collection of media continuously and the cinema captures current trends and highlights within this realm. Stairway Cinema uses architecture as a way of engaging in a discussion about curatorial practice, urbanism and the role of Architects as place-makers and provocateurs. 
The structure is a slender timber truss made from 24x24mm pine members. Covering this frame is a triple skin system of fabric that provides a waterproof exterior, a dappled light effect and a soft tactile interior surface. Sited above an existing exterior stairway the fabric and timber hood creates a new interior within the public realm; a space that is free to enter and welcomes all. The interior, softened with custom made cushions, offers a repurposed seating tier. Over the entrance video content is projected onto the screen at the cantilevered end of the structure.
CURATORIAL SEASON
Stairway Cinema was part of St PAUL ST GALLERY’s Curatorial Season 2012 organised by SPSG Assistant Director Vera Mey.

Florian Riviere is an “urban hacktivist”. He founded and led from 2008 to 2012 the collective Strasbourg “Democratie Creative”.


Inspired by the hacker culture, he reinvests and diverts public space to allow citizens to reclaim their environment. His interventions, located between urban design “Do It Yourself” and upcycling (upgrading waste), have the particularity to be spontaneous and raw, exclusively made with objects found in the street, and always with humor.
Games, furnishings, traps, maps, instructions … : so many urban tactics to show the functionality of sites, and direct action of the user on urban space.
A space unfortunately controlled for too long by professionals and bureaucrats of the city, and now lacking in humanity and sensitivity.

Recetas Urbanas-Puzzle house, Sevilla 2003
the puzzle house is a temporary built urban intervention. Recetas urbanas occupied empty building sites in Sevilla for two years each to subvert building regulations (the 3rd section of the 4th chapter of the 3rd title of the Town Development Plan of Seville, that oversees the specific conservation and temporary occupation of empty sites) and legitimate the construction of the nomad home by calling it an art installation.
