Vertical Scatteration
Intervention by Joshua Schreier

MMM is an incorporation of TIER. The new space reflects on the potentialities and possibilities of micro-scale exhibition making. It is inspired by Perec’s Life: A User’s Manual, where the writer handled the building as the structure for the book’s narrative.
