While citi es are massive and complex machines, they can also be understood as the aggregation of many smaller actors, objects, and phenomena. A focus on minor but agile, temporary, and mobile agents of the city may lead to new conclusions about the ability for spaces in the city to develop deeper contextual relevance and catalytic potential, and in turn, a more malleable sense of ownership, identity, and public space. Further, given the era of millennials, this perspective may allow for a reinterpretati on of infrastructure to be speedy and accessible – even “Instagrammable” – while also being integral to community outreach and the politics of art and space.
