Poetipedestrian Crosswalks

A poetic and playful trail, weaving through the crosswalks of urban spaces.

Crosswalks are urban writing spaces; Cosmogama use them as lined notebook pages, writing words and sentences on the white stripes that relate to the crosswalk’s immediate surroundings. The Poetipedestrian Crosswalks cut through the gray and white of urban streets and add to the dialog that Cosmogama wish to foster between the inhabitants and their city.


This device is part of COSMOLANDS, an installation at the service of an appropriation and a dynamization of urban, natural and heritage spaces. COSMOLANDS aims to help live one’s space, live one’s memory, live the social body to which one belongs. To quote Pina Bausch: our action would seek to invent moments of pure love.
