The process consists of four steps that received their definitive labels during the course of the developments documented here. First comes Demarcating - the process of articulating the spatial boundaries of the site of the zoöp in legal, architectonic and ecological terms. The next step is Observing & Sensing the entities that live in it and becoming aware of their relationships. The third stage is that of Characterising the qualities of these relationships and thus the condition of the collective body, which leads to knowing where, when, and how to complete the fourth and final step: Intervening in the zoöp, in order to improve its quality of life.
Each team chose different sites to be observed as proto-zoöps and engaged with these sites through this method.
