CO-PRESENTED WITH RENFREWSHIRE LEISURE
ACTION HERO / MIA + ERIC (England/Canada)
A hopeful, positive act of re-configuration, where byelaws that regulate behaviours in civic spaces — in this case Paisley’s “Rules for the Management of Public Parks” — are cut up word-by-word and meticulously rearranged into a new set of rules for a transitioning world.
From this new poetic script, selected phrases are enlarged and re-inserted back into the architecture of the cityscape on hoardings and giant billboards, acting as playful instructions, permissions or manifestos; a collection of imagined alternative behaviours unfolding throughout the city.
You are invited to help with reconstructing Paisley’s new Future Perfect byelaws! Visit our interactive website (launched early May) to submit your own new rule, using cut-up words from the original text. Then look out for Paisley’s new byelaws as they appear around town.
