dc.description.abstract Atopia: without landscape, place. Methods are explored for both recording and activating atopia: by introducing the subject, rather than the object; and through projections, both literal and figurative, in order to create an event. Projections are necessary for atopic sites because the sites themselves do not appropriate, but exist as receptors/collectors of the unexpected. Ideas have been projected through site, history, and abstract context in the creation of events within specific situations, while objects collected are incorporated for further investigation of the ideas or subject relative to the urban condition. The importance of spectacle based on found objects or conditions inherent to a site is examined in both on-site and "nonsite" arenas.
