Moving Fence

Shiny black lines make their way across the 260 meters of a yellow construction fence. As in an abstract film, new forms and compositions constantly emerge from the simple material of the line. The transforming lines suggest patterns of movement in different tempos and character. Depending on their own pace, be it by car, foot or bike, each passer-by experiences the dance of the lines differently.

Developed through a three-stage competition organized by Kunstkredit Basel and Hochbauamt Basel.
