This book was produced in collaboration with Sally Janssen during a residency in Piran, Slovenia. We set out to explore how the spaces of the town communicated their functions. Through the performative aspect of producing the book we sought to inject fresh energy into the town.

With the help of Sonja Kocevar we organised a series of staged photographs where local residents enacted scenes emphasising the purpose of the various town’s spaces in a comical manner. The book was intended as an alternative guidebook to the city, inviting readers to engage with the town as a participant, not as an onlooker.
