FUNNYCROSS II
(Site-specific) Urban Art&Design
Torrelodones, (Madrid) - November 2015
The design uses the pedestrian crossings as a universal icon. Through this pattern that is constantly repeated in the urban space, reinforces the specific signage and introduces a touch of color in our urban landscape. Uses simple geometric designs and saturated colors, because the geometry is a universal language and try to reach everyone without cultural exceptions. Strives to improve the approach of drivers and pedestrians, improving respect for the passage of zebra using their visual impact.

The metaphor "A bridge between two banks" is the starting point of this artistic intervention. It rescues the decorative concept of the mosaics of the Roman soil and intervenes in the "paspartú", that the white lines of the zebras are formed, without invading and thus visually increase the presence of them.

The project also raises questions about color in urban planning and defies the gray and mundane hue that has become the norm in modern cities.

“FUNNYCROSS II” has been located in different places of public space of Torrelodones, Madrid: parks, hospitals, malls, stadiums, including the crosswalks in front a three public and one private schools. In total, 18 pedestrian crossings have been intervened.
