In biology, interbreeding creates future generations with qualities absent in the parent generation. That is what Interbreeding Field seeks to accomplish. The ‘fields’ it refers to in its name can be social, historical or physical. By grafting these fields together, new ideas of public space can be generated. For example, in one project, the studio built a park on a scaffold over a parking lot, drawing attention to how we have designed our cities for cars not people.
Interbreeding Field brings in students to help explore and design projects – starting with gaining an understanding of the social and philosophical grounding which makes that project necessary. The students then execute the projects, which can range from the practical (e.g., a bridge) to the fanciful (e.g, an installation).
Interbreeding Field’s work has encompassed public space in all forms, from benches to museum exhibitions, all of which look to explore how new spaces can be created by overlapping the ‘fields’ we already know.
