“1.602 m2 is the dimension of a personal space I had while staying in Roja. All of my belongings and myself were placed within this amount of space. This was the only space where I didn’t have to share with others. Leaving Roja I decided to claim the same amount of space in Roja, but for the public use. This is a public furniture/sculpture, which has the same dimension and the shape as the space I occupied. People can sit on it, lie down on it, lean onto it, or use it however they like.”
