This book documents Uncommon Land, an urban intervention project that I led. This project explores how public space is used and controlled and in particular, how privatised public space is regulated.

Through flash mob events, online mapping and video documentation, Uncommon Land aims to explore the growing trend of pseudo-public spaces governed by their own set of rules and regulations. The project invites members of the public to participate in acts that are normally unremarkable, but that are locally contested because of the legal status of the area in which they are carried out. The project tests the boundaries of what is arbitrarily forbidden within certain spaces in the city.
