Red Crossing: participatory public performance

Roland Graf

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 (in collaboration with Nick Tobier and Jennifer Low).
