Conceived as an adaptive park that would rearrange itself to create new artistic opportunities, the project explored the controversial space between ‘street art’ and ‘gallery art’.  The park was simultaneously covert (there was no curation or regulation) and overt (parts of the project would emerge along the freeway, exposing passers by).  Analysis was performed that tied various phenomenon to the map – this process both allowed the program of the park to emerge, as well as it’s operational characteristics.  The movements are connected to the changing site – traffic patterns, noise, light and so on.  The end result is an architectural infrastructure that allows design to emerge based on participation.
