A bench offers a place of temporary privacy in the public sphere; on a street, in a park, at a railway or bus station, in an art gallery or museum.  Sitting on a bench is a transient stop. On the way somewhere, in between here and there, a place to pause.

Sitting on a bench also presents social possibilities, the chance to strike up a conversation with a stranger or interact with passing people - an inherently shared or shareable space; an encounter waiting to happen.

BENCH presents diverse interpretations of this humble, utilitarian structure.
