The Mobile Zebra-Crossing
Inside of the studios
The Dosenfabrik is located at the end of an arterial road. Stresemannstrasse is one of the streets most driven in Hamburg.
On the opposite side of the Dosenfabrik there are new artist communities with a lot of studios. They are close, but it is nearly impossible to cross the road without a car.
Travelling by foot is a little bit out of time, but it is also a way to reach places you will never reach by car.
An attemt to install a temporary zebra-crossing will be made.
This action becomes a symbol for for a necessary slowdown, for beeing 'on one's way', for the small journey in everydays life - briefly, for all pedestrians.
It will be a mobile shared space<
Globalization and the Web have changed the meaning of 'distance'.
A good many times the nearest seems to be very far away.
This conversational zebra-crossing of the road is trying to bride this gap.
A dialogue with the closest neighbours and their works becomes possible.
Guests and other neighbours are invited to join the dialogue.
