16 times 18

In September of 2009 ae.i.ou was invited to participate in RUS San Juan, one episode of the Basurama Collective’s (www.basurama.org) Urban Solid Waste Project thought Latin America and the Caribbean. Sponsored by the Puerto Rico Museum of Contemporary Art, RUS San Juan dealt with the activation of public spaces that are linked to the local public transportation infrastructure.

16 times 18 [16 veces 18] was developed as an exploration of the potential complementary uses that could be adopted in the bus stops in San Juan.  Using bus stop #18 in the neighborhood Santurce, which is located in front of the Puerto Rico Museum of Contemporary Art. We proposed a series of activities that people could take part in while waiting for their bus to arrive, with the intention of enabling the productive use of otherwise wasted time.
