Occupying a tree reminds some of us maybe to our childhood. But can we use it also a place to live? That question asked the group around Recetas Urbanas with their project the Insect house. The also developed a strategy for that intervention in the public space with they called the “Tick’s Stratagem”.
THE TICK’S STRATAGEM
-Occupation of a tree with provisional shelter.
-Resistance to urban politics.
-Light construction systems.
-Reversible colonization strategy.
-Dynamics of social adhesion.
-Lucid, but destabilizing, action.
-Instantaneous temporal sequence.
