Someone lives in the tent under the tree, or did live there. Why would someone collect all this stuff (and there is even more on the right, not shown) and spread it all over this concrete pad?

My impression is that this is a very disorganized, mentally ill person, not an ordinary homeless hoarder. Items were placed far apart. There were things like tables, a suitcase, buckets, ice chests, folding chair, regular chair, backpack, pieces of plywood, miscellaneous flotsam and what looked like a pile of rags. Nothing looked useable.

I stood here for a while, but didn't see anyone stirring. This is an unusual scene so close to residential areas. There is even a school a few hundred yards to the right.

You'll probably never know Diane.............but it's sad that anyone should have to live like that :-(

He/she doesn't have to live like that. There is a new, spacious shelter with good meals, social services and nice staff. But, mentally ill and addicted people don't want to abide by the rules and often get evicted. Others just don't want to be "in the system."

I understand. Perhaps I should have said that it's sad that anyone should be in that situation.

I wonder why the person spread all the stuff over the pad, may be he/she is/was looking for some special remains from the fires around)

Possibly, or picking things up from garbage bins. Most likely a mentally ill person who can't make sense of what he or she is doing.

Maybe a kind of street art, or art in public space?

I doubt it. More like a collection of random objects for no purpose. Everything was dirty and broken, perhaps taken out of garbage cans.
