Default is a journey where art is being created on the road. The route is decided by the folds of a train-map of Europe. Every fold journey serves as a test-case for a future where fossil fuels are dried out and artists become mobile nomads. Artistic caravans travel through Europe and follow an arbitrary line which provides input for performance, photography, installations, landmarks, etc. The intention of the travel is to pay attention to the landscape, people and roads we pass. On the line agriculture and local ecological projects are being connected. The travel is low powered and uses mobile devices that map, document and communicate about the travelers whereabouts.

7 people walk during 7 days on the borders of a lot of land of 30m2 in Hranice, Czech Republic. A path will be created and along the 'road' stories will be spread. Guest speakers will be invited to talk about space. Derived topics will be land-use, claims of land, ownership, public space and the implications this has on users. How can artists reclaim public space, fields, nature etc. And how can their works or projects stimulate 'other users' to reclaim their space.
The performance will result in a land-art piece which will be claimed by the owner of the 30m2 land, Various Artists, on yo-yo's territory.
