Urban Intervention, Rio de Janeiro. 2005
Texts in vinyl installed temporarily in the floor of the Gustavo Capanema Building’s ‘marquise’, as a way to communicated with passers by that normally are looking down (to cell phones). The building is also a landmark of Brazilian modernist architecture, what makes a contradiction: in looking down, all the possibilities of seeing the building are temporarily canceled. The phrases were then aimed to try to create a noise communication with people that normally uses the ‘marquise’ as a shortcut for their walks in the area, reintroducing some ideas linked to that modernist building, as also to the ideologies behind the movement that informed its construction.
