A lady crosses the street+ Antigo
Despite how unique or special a street or neighbourhood may look, they are used everyday by everyday people, from the garbage man to the everyday suit. I don’t think (like some may think) this takes the shine or the mystique away from the surrounding areas, I think it gives it more depth, excitement and layers than anyone could imagine. The movement of humans through the streets are the blood cells running through the veins of the city. They give it life.
A Car Crosses The Street
Roads. They’re are anonymous, they’re boring, they’re grey and abrasive. It’s only when you associate a certain road with a direction do they come to life. Where are they going, where are they from? Only when they are taken into some sort of context do they serve purpose and relevance. They come to life when they are surrounded by its destination, they have more importance as the main artery of a main road is broken down into smaller vessels destined at a specific place. Something unique and special to your journey.
That Escalated Quickly…
Subterranean landscapes have always been places of movement, and normally fast movement too. come and go, now you see me, now you don’t. Maybe its within our nature to not want to be underground for longer than we want when given the chance.
Stand Still São Paulo
When there is too much individual movement things clog.
A Foot Bridge Crosses The Street
The Footbridge has a completely different purpose to the road. They are a conflict of interests. Going over is a big deal, going under is not. This is to do with speed. When moving fast we take less in, things become disposable. When going over we see the cars and the view, when going under we see the structure, if we bother to even look.
Connecting The Dots
Metro systems take us from portal to portal. Everything else in between is dark and contained. How many places do you associate with a platform underground? Metro’s are the closest things we have to teleportation.
When There Isn’t A Green Man
Traffic lights are determined by a sequence of electronic logic gates. What happens when technology doesn’t dictate how we get from one place to another? We rely on our instincts to make sure we get from one side to another.
