Seatings are not necessarily chairs, in the way they do not always have legs or a backrest, but if they do, they may be appropriating something that was once designed to be a chair. They need not even be sat on and could be used to hold items. This fourth study in the Street Report series looks at ways people invent chairs or even the act of sitting itself in the streets. Some of them reinforce common notions of a seat but many challenge or question it.
