The rented fence panels, miles of which are used during the festival to divide and control people, were turned on their ends to create a temporary lounge area providing shade and allowing for gathering and interaction. Cup City engaged the festivalâ€™s stream of consumption that slowly accreted in its ever-changing walls. After construction of the fence infrastructure, the walls of the lounge were slowly filled with the used bottles, cups, and cans by concertgoers and volunteers, many of whom spent hours arranging and rearranging patterns on the walls. 9 / 1 0 2 0 0 6
