This is the crime against the squatter, the crime of the wasted, unused buildings and spaces in our urban environment. Squatters occupy these spaces, regenerating the unused space into a home. They build their homes from what we discard, yet they are still pushed out by police and landlords. This costume contains all the important elements of occupying a space in order to protect the squatter, such as territory boundaries, security, door number, basic amenities, comfort, personal decoration and possession over time. By wearing this costume the squatter is constantly in occupation of their chosen space, laying claim to it and preventing their imminent removal.
