Walking as Drawing

Local Project: Long Island City, NY: 9.21.13

Starting in front of PS1 in Long Island City, we walked for 30 minutes on Saturday 9.21.13 starting at 4:30 pm. Thanks to El Paper Magazine and Local Project!

I think it's interesting how the grid imposes itself on the paths, but the diagonals cut across that pattern. From the conversations I had with people, various factors influenced their walks from the wind (it was intense) to avoiding where they worked. One participant added rules to the project, following the color red through the streets. Check out Richard Alomar's amazing sketch blog here: http://nycsketch.blogspot.com/
