      Communities of Desire / Lystfællesskaber
          By Field Work / Lise Skou & Nis Rømer
           
        xx "When as a consequence of human improvement,
the global shall arrive at its final perfection, the
great ocean is to be converted into a particular
kind of lemonade. [...] Just imagine the city docks
filled, every day, with a flood tide of this delectable
beverage!"
(Nathaniel Hawthorne in chapter 7 of "The Blithedale Romance")


Communities of Desire is about creating zones of otherness. A street is cut off
and used as a zone for play and exchange. We were referring loosely to Charles
Fourier, an early socialist writer, and dedicated the space to the desire for free-
dom and communality to be played out in public. As the event coincided with the
apple season, we collected free apples and made the streets float with lemonade,
- or in this case -free freshly pressed apple juice.
