24 miles or 38.6 kilometers
“24 miles or 38.6 kilometers” is an animation performed by small imperfections and differences of the pedestrian traffic lights along Broadway in New York.
Contrary to our expectations public communication signs are disparate, not uniform: orientation undergoes constant changes and subsequent reorientation.
Still the pedestrian crossing lights remain constant within an ever changing cityscape, embedding imperfections and differences. However, even if the signs are the “same” we witness not only the different generations installed in public, but also that they have become canvases of artistic expression and technical failure.
Their manifestation is of comical as well as tragic nature.
