Around the world, public space is becoming privatized and corporatized; the public square becomes the private mall. Graphic artist Robin Howie "travelled around London creating a series of typographic interventions within the environment. These featured rhetoric statements which encourage questions about the nature and success of public space."
"These interventions where photographed and collated into a two-person book which uses space itself. Two books are bound together. One book is titled ‘A Dialogue with Public Space’ featuring all of the odd number pages, and the other ‘A Dialogue with Privately owned Public Space’ has all of the even pages."
