*POP*(presentoccupantproject) is a WalkerHill - Michael Walker & Martyn Hill - side-project that looks
to investigate the tenuous borders delineating public and private terrains and that call attention to
the “in-between” spaces encountered throughout the city and the everyday.
Geopolis initiates modest anonymous interventions; detourement’s that interact with the street
furniture and the graphic aesthetic of the streetscape. Methods range from formal analysis, to contextual
transformations and ironic proposals of correction, in order to critically question, both form and function of
artistic production and presentation. The formal-aesthetical innovations of the 20th century
such as abstraction or techniques of collage are not updated here for their own purpose, but function as
art-historian references by which the image-inventions of the modern era can be tried and tested anew.
