No public space is without its own set of rules and regulations. They exist for picnicking in a park in New York City, for group dancing in Sweden, for kids returning home from school in Iceland, and for demonstrating in front of the White House. Keep an eye on the next related media report and you’ll notice a single file line of no more than fifty individuals. While they may be invisible to the naked eye, laws and constraints always regulate the circulation of citizens within urban space. With Friction Atlas, La Jetée – the Eindhoven-based collaborative practice of designers and researchers Paolo Patelli and Guiditta Vendrame – visualize these implicitly present regulations. By drawing 1:1 diagrams on the pavement of the Spuiplein, La Jetée’s TodaysArt 2016 work reveals the invisible forces that determine our behaviour on and around the square.
