1 - 10

This is the starting point of my 8th semester, fall 2008. It`s mapping of people crossing a road in Århus. I filmed the sequence from the first floor in McDonalds, asking a mom and two kids to move so that I could shoot this very important piece for an "art project". Rude as always. A funny thing about people in Denmark, is that they never cross the road if the light is red, even if you can`t see a car for miles. Absurd, but true. Therefore, a (huge) crowd accumulates on each side during red, and the second it turns green (or blue, as they say in Japan) everyone starts walking. The picture is 10 seconds, from red, until a pedestrian blend. Line = distance per second. Dot = standing still during a second.
