Park Bench Therapy

Shared Spaces Brief

This project documents the background conversations, passing thoughts, and sights we instantaneously forget (or don’t pay attention to) whilst sat on a park bench during the end of 2020 -where the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions only permitted people to go to open spaces for brief socialising or exercise. The book peeks into the lives of people that pass by, and is written in the form of a diary giving insight of the thoughts and feelings of the writer -who is also one of the many people who seek brief escapism or isolation therapy at their nearby park bench.
