Smash This Puny Existence emerged from a street action staged by Inventory, in London’s Hanway Street. Newly commissioned texts, along with ‘found’ material, were flyposted throughout the street, in turn redesignating this popular thoroughfare as a public ‘newspaper’. The Street became a discursive situation, a space for the potential exchange of ideas and information.
