Lot o' love

Apparently, a group of "let's put on a play in the barn"-type kids are organizing an event in the empty lot across the street from me, the lot that was supposed to have been turned into a new mega-station for police, but which sits empty because the ground is full of arsenic, or rather some highly toxic industrial byproduct from the days when the factories on Lansdowne were used to make all kinds of nasty crap. Perfect place for a party!

To quote the invite:

You are also welcome to contribute to the Land of the Lost structurally, by building a fort or whatsoever your little heart desires.

This is not art or a “partee” per se but an exercise in relational aesthetics. Relational aesthetics is cultural practice based on inter-human relations.

From that, I'm guessing the place will be filled with a bunch of ten-year-olds with cultural studies degrees.
