long duration performance art
gun Staple filler


Ephemicropolis is a performance art piece that reflects the urban sprawl resulting from the lack of spatial planning regulation, influenced by global economic changes. The performance involves the continuous composing and de-composing of gun track filler site-specifically, following the existing cracks on the floor. The fragility of the filler means that the composition continuously changes over an 8-hour duration. The performance acts as a metaphor for the ephemeral quality of urban development, which reflects the performative act of spatial production. Events, social consensus, and contestation of space all contribute to the creation of an ephemeral urbanism, where the city develops in a sporadic pattern.
