From roadside memorials to makeshift barriers, people consistently alter shared common spaces to suit their needs, or let both man-made and natural aberrations run wild. The result is a new kind of public space – with creative and inspiring moments that push past the original planned design of cities.

Images and text by: Temporary Services, Polonca Lovšin, Joseph Heathcott & Damon Rich, Boštjan Bugaric, Ana Celigoj, Maša Cvetko, Marko Horvat, Meta Kos, Darjan Mihajlović, Danijel Modrej, Maja Modrijan, and Sonja Zlobko.

"The book’s contributors find aesthetic interest and expressions of individual or communal intent in roadside memorials, makeshift fences, signs listing block clubs’ rules of conduct and the aforementioned parking-place savers. Instead of exclusive institutions, Public Phenomena focuses on the street and public space." -Lauren Weinberg, Time Out Chicago
