When the countryside becomes urban
Belgium
"Firefly was set up in 1999 with the aim of integrating art into every part of daily life. Its base is in Brussels and it moves nomadically around the city and its outskirts. Its main concern is an emphatically social rooting. Firefly is intended, in its creative work, to enter into communication and dialogue with the street.

To achieve this they work on a series of Creative Platforms in combination with selected sites that they discover, analyse and artistically assimilate. These sites are in most cases non-places, places that belong to everyone and no one, places with scars, places where the collective subconscious is very much alive.

N6: The Stone Road is build up around the dream to make an inventory of all Belgian trunk roads, to interpret Belgium through its trunk roads as a single huge city. The study of the Chaussťe de Mons is a first step towards realising this dream, an almost random line, running almost north-south from the centre of the country."
