Parks, Squares and Paths

 

     This series reflects the current movement transforming cities, making them more humane, green and safe for pedestrians and cyclists. A large part of the imagery of this series comes from Madrid, a city full of plazas, parks and paths. Influenced by Gordon Matta-Clark, I see change in cities as a process that involves urban planning, architecture and the visual arts. In order to imagine a new space, one cuts through the familiar. Jane Jacob’s critical views of North American 20th century urban planning, the community spirit of the British artist/designer/architect collective “Assembly” and the organic and playful vision of the Dutch landscape architect Adriann Geuze inspire me.
