If COVID-19 has proven anything, it’s that cities need to adapt and change. This past year across the world, they moved quickly to prototype new ways of experiencing and exploring the city during a global health crisis. They’ve become more pedestrian and bike friendly, embraced the use and creation of outdoor public spaces, and offered safe moments of fun and delight. Created for and during the pandemic, Walk Walk Dance is a series of music-making lines that explore how participation and interaction can create new spaces for play in cities. Let’s play with physical distancing rules, one, two, three steps at a time. It’s simple: step, jump, roll or dance on the lines to trigger music. This project was designed to be accessible to everyone, whether they are on foot or on wheels: all the technology is enclosed in a chain of boxes and planters, weighted down with local plants. Lines are simply drawn, painted or taped.
