Finding your place

Hurting legs, meeting with other people or the simple wish to rest for some time can cause us to look for the same relief: A public bench! This lovely place already served for many intentions since it was invented. One can sit on it, lay on it, play on it, talk on it and jump on it. But apparently, this place did not only serve these purposes, in German, for instance, but an illegitimate child can also be called a derived version of the word bench for already more than 900 years since it was assumed to be procreated on it.
The bench, a place designed to serve its clients. A place to bring facilitation. A place where people come together and separate. A place where one can sit on the leftovers of the predecessor while reading Shakespeare. A public place which simply cannot help if the one that found it before you doesn’t want to share.
