Pop-up Ecologies by Ines Dantas

Community Hammock.

Dressing the trees in a pop-up experiment of performative urbanism.

In this work, trees are explored in their relationship with people and open urban spaces, creating a temporary ecology of public space, and triggering speculative environmental reflections. Based on spatial connections seen from a three-dimensional scanning of the site. Fabric lines connect the trees and interpret the role of 'landscape' in the urban space.

This temporary architecture starts with a first phase of assemblage, followed by a performance with Laban Centre graduates dancers. Dancers engage with the public, the installation and the trees and visitors can participate in the design, reconfiguring it.
In between the performance, stand-up talks on landscape, urban culture and public space, based on ongoing research at the University College London.
