The Street training manual is the latest in a series of manuals and publications by Lottie Child that can all be downloaded from her website. She works with collective and direct action, play and the politics of public space. She also devises urban explorations in order to collectively produce guides for active engagement with urban places. She invites specific people to share their expertise and subjective responses to the notions of freedom of movement and anti social behaviour in increasingly sanitized and controlled urban places.
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
