Human nature is prone to desire the feeling of comfort and to improve the environment that surrounds them to make the space more aesthetically pleasing and comfortable. But the organization of such conditions is not always possible due to various reasons. The problem of visual content in the city can be observed everywhere and is expressed in various ways: from visual noise and advertisements in the center of an empty, non-functional space in residential areas and up to the periphery. Yards and new buildings rarely have any semantic and functional meaning, inside them everything works in chaotic orders and lives in an unintelligible space. The need to improve this environment is felt by both ordinary residents and urban services, but due to inexperience, lack of professionalism and understanding of real needs, the result is rarely successful. Often, the initiative comes from residents themselves, who start create all sorts of objects from garbage, tires and plastic, unnecessary household items, integrating them into the space of the yard. But man’s desire to improve the surrounding reality became contradictory to itself by cluttering the given space. This socio-cultural effect has become the object of our observation, in the course of which we created a reflection of the influence and interaction with this phenomenon.
