Red Crossing by Roland Graf + Nick Tobier in Germany

Red Crossing: a group of people join to lift a large, red rectangle of fabric, while another person runs across it.
Roland Graf: Red Crossing: participatory public performance 

Red Crossing, a project created by Stamps Associate Professor Roland Graf, Stamps Professor Nick Tobier, and Jennifer Low (MDes​’20), will appear on Elias Holtz Platz, Augsburg, Germany on October 15 and 232022.

Red Crossing is a participatory public performance centered on a red walkway that can be lifted like a life-saving net allowing pedestrians to float a few feet above the ground. Red Crossing challenges the assumptions of human movement and flow through public space. It seeks to create physically and socially intelligent structures that facilitate cooperation, emotional release and transcend the expectations of urban geography and infrastructure as fixed.
