THE COMFY CITY Please have a seat. Or make one. Our urban spaces could definitely benefit from more public seating and relaxation. How luxurious it will seem when we are able to rest our feet where we please once in a while. Let us know the location of other stumps in need of improvement. Or for the handy and brave, a chain saw can do the job with two careful cuts. Ask your local tool rental shop for safety tips. Let us make the comfy city ours. --love, Jane Tsong & Robert Powers, 2003

"In a city where most walls are too high, low, narrow or studded to accommodate a human backside, and where sitting on the sidewalk is a ticketable offence, their gift of physical comfort turns them into quietly radical objects."-- Owen Driggs, 2010
