This is a social network

14th April 2010, Milan.

What is today the public space? While on the web many “agora” are popping up, the social network should come back to the street by transforming, for instance, a useless and forgotten city wall, but perfectly painted, into a notice board. From these considerations “This is a social network” comes alive. The installation, made of a pen and a Post-it pad, was placed during the 2010 Milan Design Week, with the aim of sharing people’s ideas about the issues that such event should rouse in a city that has lost its relation with its streets. The messages left by the people didn’t contain any particularly interesting opinions.
