Site Specific Installation addressing Loitering Laws and regulations of public space.

From 2000 to 2005 flotsam has engaged in a series of projects that contest municipal regulations restricting the use of sidewalks and streets. This work began in Chicago, a city that has, through the enactment of a number of constitutionally questionable anti-loitering ordinances, assumed a leading role in the nationwide assault on the publics’ right to gather and socialize in urban public spaces
