As we move around the city, we are navigating multiple spaces simultaneously: on one hand, the physical outlines of buildings and roads, on the other, the abstract routes, dynamics, and obstacles imposed by city maps and signs. The tension between such spaces can be menacing: after all, maps and signs exist in part to deny you full access to the city's geographic location, to enforce laws and property rights. They keep you confidential. However, they can also be a source of pleasure, inviting you to read your surroundings, as some realities are fighting each other and never get along in harmony. After living in London for 10 years, I'm still quiet about walking between the subway stations and rearranging the connections (only colored lines on the map show understanding).
Skookum Arts' Pedestrians attracted such joy. It embodies the idea that a symbol creates its own space inside / on the urban geography by transforming the symbol into a re-arrangeable platform hierarchy, and the completion of these ideas will take you deeper into a sleepy 3D metropolis. You play familiar 2D human graffiti on one billion toilet doors and bring them to life on whiteboards. Moving forward on the right, you will find yourself sliding between cluttered offices, the camera tracking you gracefully, as if following a butterfly, happy jazz ear itching on the eardrum.
