Command 1: Response October 25th 2011
Strasbourg Pavement Collection Project
From the start date – October 25th 2011 – I will collect photos of Strasbourg’s pavements – measuring and marking a section of 1m2 for each street, avenue, alley, plaza or square (etc.) selected.
Strasbourg has 487 streets (approx.). With 63 days remaining in Strasbourg I will collect 8 pavements a day – exploring the city more thoroughly in the process.
This collection will be brought together in a final piece featuring each 1m2 reduced to 4.5cm2 to make a new 1m2 print.
1m2 = 100cm × 100cm = 10, 000 cm
10,000 / 487 = 20.538809076
√20.538809076 = 4.531432544294437
*I will round this figure down to 4.5
Please see the following sheets as illustrations of the process so far.
