The Triangle Project Part 4 – Fill In Blank Space
I went to get a loan and they asked my race
I wrote down human inside the space

The fourth episode of The Triangle Project Adventure is subtitled: Fill In Blank Space.
The title opens up onto an understanding of space that playfully challenges the given notions of urban space.
The order to fill in the blank space raises different connotations. On one hand to a civic (perhaps even restraining) system of formulas and information retrieval attempting to formulate and control the urban landscape and culture, on the other hand the title opens up to a more positive blank space of possibility.
The blank space is used as a method to transform any predefined space into a blank space; a piece of white paper; a clean slate; a new common ground from where new ideas can grow and blossom.
The blank space turns our ideas of space and space belongings, upside down and leaves the clear definition behind in favor of the empty potential space; the space in which a true meeting can occur.
The blank space is honest to the potentiality of the meeting between cities, cultures and people, erasing all prejudices and stereotypical notions beforehand.
The blank space can be found (or claimed) in the art space, the club scene or in public.
The blank space is not yet defined; it is for everybody to fill in…
