In Situ project by Julien Carretero

    In situ is a series of objects made of recently excavated wood from Eindhoven's Medieval city wall. After more than 600 years underground, the
    oak wood that was once used to protect the city is brought back to the public space in the form of instruments for revolution. Their intervention
    aims to question and challenge the routine taking place in cityscapes. Through the creation of situations of wonder, In situ wants to break public
    passivity and encourage passers-by to actively participate to the spectacle of daily life. The In situ props, which all share the symbolic value of both
    escape and uprising, interact with wanderers on various levels: may these be physical, visual, narrative or emotional.
    In situ wants to unleash feelings and people.
    In situ is a trigger.

    The In Situ project done by Julien Carretero was part of the 'Matter of Time' exhibition organized by design collective Dutch Invertuals, under the curation of Wendy Plomp. The Matter of Time exhibition was introduced to the public during Dutch Design Week 2010 and was shown at the Design House of Eindhoven
