Loving these colorful geometric crosswalks created in Madrid by visual media and conceptual artist Christo Guelov. Entitled, “Funny Cross”, the designs were developed to encourage people to cross the street safely making the crosswalks more visible to both pedestrians and drivers. On his profile he writes this about his work:
“Movement makes time visible, is the formal change. Distinguishing the terms: “things” of “events”, “mobility” of “immobility”, “time” of “timelessness”, “to be” or “to become”, my attention is focused on the “space-time” time. Temporality of the space, relativity of “the whole” and recurrence of the time in the life cycles are the target of my experiments and determine the nature of my work.”
