Mediated Infrastructure is a proposal for a new type of integrated public space and landscape art working from the found condition of the Atlanta Beltline towards a project which is understood as an art infrastructure meant to serve as a catalytic provocateur for future generations of artist and citizens to actively create and engage society in the public realm. The proposal is considered to be field, figure, and framework functioning simultaneously as a new public space, a figural reference to the powerful history of the site, and acting as an infrastructural system within which future artist will be encouraged to propose ephemeral interventions as a means of constantly rethinking and reactivating the space. Public space and public art are fused into a singular living construct. Art is to be fully engaged, experienced, and lived in rather than being passively viewed as object, left to be removed by the next generation.
