Description: Responding to the proliferation and legitimation of tent’s installed in the city used by the homeless population as semi-permanent shelter, the Action Researcher/Performer stencilled texts on the outside of a purchased tent, quoting recent articles about the challenges faced by homeless people living on the streets of Paris.  This included the high mortality rate recorded during the previous six months.  When finished, the stencilled tent was then positioned at various locations along the Seine River where homeless people notoriously set up tent.
