“The physical space of most American and some European cities is becoming privatised. And in the process of this privatisation, deviants who defy defensive architecture are prohibited, demonised and excluded. A class war is being fought, at the level of space. Along with this recapitulation of space goes an extensive iconography; a semiotics of exclusion which is spreading…”Mike Davis, City of Quartz.

The second edition of my Anti-Skateboarding Devices zine is now available buy online via Big Cartel.
