It’s been really hard for me to put into words all the things the #OWS movement means to me, but this blog post aptly expresses many of the core aspects I see in the movement. This quote in particular resonates with me: ‘Other models of spatial production, and indeed, even of reality creation – based in collaboration, smaller in scale, briefer in time, and unfolding from a ground of love, not fear – have the potential to defuse the political control over the built environment. Inhabitation is speech, and it can create new realities. The method is less faith, and more magic, and watching this method deployed, it’s hard to argue against the message that another world is possible’.
