Urban intervention
2013

In urban centers in 2013, people walk in a hurry. The gaze, the hearing, the path and the walking itself no longer exist. People leave one point to quickly reach another one. The space between these two points doesn't arouse any interest. Sandwalk with me is an excursion that sympathizes with the swing, the stumbles, the waves of the sea and the streetcars that crossed the center of Rio de Janeiro in the beginning of the 20th century. Sandwalk with me is an experience that is literally carried by each sandwalker. Come and be a sandwalker!

Sandwalk with me is an intervention that proposes an experience of slowing down and friction of time. Spectators/participants are invited to walk, in group, with special slippers and damper noises headphones, in the commercial and financial center of a big city.
