Towards a better public art

The public art we see around us often has little to do with the public. How can we move towards better kind of art in our cities? Andrew Shoben, founder of greyworld, talks about the potential of small interventions, embedded into the urban fabric of a public space. His art allows self-expression in areas of the city that people see everyday but normally exclude and ignore. And lets people play with the city.
