the individual and the landscape of persons – public transport

Starting from a study of the Viennese tramway, which is one of the oldest still flourishing public transport networks in the world, we ob- serve the poetics of human anonymity, which arises from the contrast between the individual and the moving masses.The real, unretouched presence of masses moving through build landscapes opposes strikingly to today‘s virtual presence of them in social media.

The new way of looking at this contrast arises from the contrast itself, defining the artistic means used: extremely personal but anonymous, industrial but classical, digital but corporal.
