The main object of study and action RUS San Juan is the use that is generated in the public space linked to mobility in the city, suggesting an activation systems using as tools space and waste generated from the city itself, showing a direct part of who we are. Propose an analysis of the city’s public space centered in the neighborhood of Santurce and organized around the main public transportation system (the bus) and its connection to the key points of the city through its network of stops. Taking Ponce de Leon Avenue as the site of intervention. The documentation of all the process and its results were used to make an explicatory video and as part of a Basurama exhibition.
This collective began its research by identifying the characteristics of Ponce de León Avenue from bus stop 19 to bus stop 22. In this area we start to notice a constant presence of art - institutional as well as educational – which begins at the MAC and culminates at the Performing Arts Center. Bus stops 19 to 22 displayed spatial inadequacies in terms of identification and lack of waiting seats. Using 400 cans per curtain, the numbers for each bus stop were created. Not only did these metal curtains provide a proper identification for each bus stop, but being placed laterally, they also provided shadow within its perimeter.
