MATERIALS: volcanic rock, cork, pushpins, notes contributed by the public.

    There are two voices that inscribe public space. One is ours and it is ephemeral, improvised and temporal. The other one is the state's and it tries to be permanent and monumental. Their voice is of stone and bronze. Our voice is cork: capable of accommodating us all - even if for a short time. All we need is a scrap of paper, a pen, and a thumbtack to publish our voice.
