Actions of Time & Space on the Walk of Fame

Projects

This interactive project explored the act of walking as an intriguing and wondrous activity along Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles. Engaging the participants in physical actions that made invisible layers of planning felt, this tour focused on pedestrian posturing, urban phenomena and urban design and its affects on our senses. It’s aim was to perform the pedestrian and engage new ways of orienting within urban intensities. The participants were given cameras to log their experiences that were then projected within businesses along Hollywood Boulevard.
