public display of the project on Peckham Square
Peckham Space commssioned Manu Luksch and Neal White to develop and produce Limitations Permitted, which interprets for the general public some of the laws and bye-laws that regulate the space of Peckham Square. The central 'Kiosk' (by Office of Experiment / Neal White) in Peckham Square was staffed for eight hours each day by a 'new type of security person' talking to the public. Inviting us to consider our civil liberties or voice our response to the ubiquitous CCTV cameras, they also distributed a 'field guide'. Several silent short films are displayed in a hand-held device (mobile 3D cinema by Manu Luksch) that envelops and focuses the gaze like a ViewMaster. While bye-laws are inscribed into the featured public spaces through use of British Sign Language, dramatic scenarios that interrogate those laws unfold in the background (scripted and acted by FLIX).
