Pedestrian Series

Parking costs money, but walking is free.

Art team TimeAndDesire continues to impress us. The Toronto-based duo makes a practice out of infiltrating the public realm (often uniformed and undercover) to manipulate and recreate street signage in playful, witty and philosophically relevant ways. We’re currently crushing on their “Pedestrian Series,” a project they recently developed for Toronto’s Art of the Danforth Festival. Installed on various sign posts along the streetscape and designed to resemble those ubiquitous Green P parking signs, TimeAndDesire’s “waking signs” covertly encourage pedestrians to walk freely, exchange glances and share smiles.

This week’s Frandoms are by John Loerchner & Laura Mendes, Labspace Studio.
