1. Universal design solution (replicable and scalable) that solves a specific task: to mark the location of a city either lost or existing boat station or recreation areas near the water. The information pointer method must be original in terms of idea and design; it must be visible, identifiable, vandal-resistant, and informative.
The modern city grows out of history and its traditions, as the city is a few generations of residents who have lived a whole life and remember the realities of their time, which they treat as a value. Moreover, young people, as a rule, do not know much about the everyday history and practice of city life in the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, and even in the 70s and 80s. Meanwhile, in this Soviet time, the municipality and city services were similarly puzzled by the organization of leisure and recreation places for citizens, where they could relax after working days among the wildlife, without going far beyond the city limits. Sports and outdoor activities were also among the priorities. One of the opportunities for a pleasant and useful weekend in the maritime city were, of course, the water walks. For this purpose, boat stations were created on rivers, channels and lakes with a fleet of oar boats and the possibility of their hourly rental. This tradition was seriously damaged in the post-Soviet period. That is why the organizers chose former and currently operating boat stations as possible locations for public art objects. Temporary objects can become new points of attraction for both local residents and tourists.
2. Local art intervention "in the area" in the format of "improvising", tied to a specific place and solving a specific problem of the selected space (at the discretion of the author).
Modern street art is puzzled not only by the author's personal self-expression, but also by social projects that analyze disadvantages and inconveniences for residents of the neighborhood, developing necessary and precise interventions that allow to quickly solve the problem or at least identify it and move towards its possible solution with the help of local active residents or engineering district services. This is what we call "improvising".
3. Art projects that initiate social communication, that is, involve citizens in cooperation and dialogue with each other in order to "inhabit" public spaces near the water.
Residents of St. Petersburg are usually described as people who are not particularly open and do not tend to communicate with strangers. However, only a friendly local community is able to take responsibility to promptly raise and solve the problems of the neighborhood. In order to organize and launch such an activity, there are various social mechanisms. We offer to develop and test them in practice.
