Why create site-specific work?

Popwalk believes that physical location (which includes the sounds, smells, sights, perspective, light, etc.) influences how we see and understand art. Not only does it influence how we see art, but we also believe artists can and do make use of the surroundings to make art meaningful. Art is inseparable from its context. We believe that helping others see the dialogues between environment, culture, and history of a place gives a new sense of what "being" is. We want to provide a service that allows others to consider how integrated art is to its surroundings.
