Experiencing the city differently


In cities, what could be more tiresome than to be spectators of our trajectories every day the same?
The city has smoothed out the practices of the body to be able to accommodate them all, thus inducing an urban logic in which all trajectories and movements must be efficient, useful and fast. The urban setting traps us but, just as children would naturally have fun in it, it is up to us to free ourselves from it and divert it into our practices.
It is therefore necessary to supplement and develop the city by bringing permanent additions to the existing urban furniture. I come as if to sculpt what is already there and use the potential that the city offers to make it more complex so that pedestrians themselves turn into the creators of their behaviour in the space. For pedestrians, it is really a matter of experiencing the city differently and stimulating their body and kinesthetic perceptions, so that the apprehension of the urban space by sight is not impacted.
