The most sensual getaway

As an urban dweller, I am intrigued by the lack of open space and open space that were not originally designed for use by individuals. I am particularly curious about spaces of non-places—non-relational, non-historical, non-identity related, and built for transit purpose in French anthropologist Marc Augé’s definition.
Alone or with others, I love to venture into non-places, privatize them temporarily and do things that people usually do at home, aiming to negotiate the space and functions of non-places and share with others my experiences of them. The person in the video isn’t an actress, but someone willing to try something she finds intriguing and something she never did before. Through this act of urban intervention, I have brought “Art-as-an-Experience” to someone.
