talk in pictures
Our cities are crossed with signals, information and symbols. The use of the places and spaces of a city is often monofunctional. Signs, advertising posters and screens try to convey seemingly unambiguous messages to us and too often obscure our view on essential things: the place and the individual memories, emotions and meanings that it is able to awaken in us.
For shapes and places, we were searching for places with hidden meanings and comment on them in an intervention with paper objects. Different Shapes were first cut out from cardboard. They represent pictographically abstracted objects. These Paperart-Shapes became to signifiers and projection surfaces at the same time. We were puting them into relationship with the visited places. We recorded everything photographically.
So we discovered the city in a new way and changed our view.
