and to be moved

to move in

and to move out

URBAN RHYTHMS is a reading of a vivid city. A place in constant flux through bodies moving through, day and night, endless cycles merging into one another.

Through writing the artist explores movements, rhythms and the performativity of walking the city. These experiences are visually orchestrated in blocks and rows of words, forming a new architectural landscape. The words become both heavy compositional elements and potential carriers of additional meaning.
