90 degrés

90° | Fontenay-sous-bois 2008

“ ‘90°’ is the tale of two walls. One turned towards the street sees cars, trucks, and bikes passing by and the other gives onto the park, where it sees pedestrians, prams and dogs strolling past, and receives the moving shadows of the leaves of trees. These two walls will talk to one another like a game of consequences, from one to the other. Phrases which turn at the next corner to the left, change the direction, ask again.” On white wooden planks which join at the corner, the phrases turn suddenly and at right angles: a game of consequences, outstretched, written by Christine Rodès. The installation is an urban typographic sculpture, an urban fixture to go with the to-ing and fro-ing of some, driving, and others, on foot.

mots voyageurs #2

Pour ce projet, initié par Malte Martin, chaque jour du mois de septembre, deux mots seront affichés avec une présentation étymologique pour retracer leur voyage avant d’arriver dans la langue française.

Pour cette installation, qui célèbre ainsi le métissage de la langue commune, nous avons eu le plaisir de recevoir des créations de graphistes et de typographes du monde entier.
