Pedestrian Project

Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn New York, 4 pm, August 2008 / Photo: Gabe Kirchheimer

Berlin, Germany, with Berlin Wall, August 1999

The Pedestrian Project consists of several performers wearing entirely black custom-made costumes modeled after the generic images of men, women, and children, it's like seeing those public signs from the bathroom's door coming to life!
This project started in 1990 and it was performed around the world, from New York City to The Netherlands.
It recently made an appearance in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, to help promote "Williamsburg Walks", an event which closed the streets for Pedestrians to use instead of cars during specified hours on the weekends.
This lovely work was created by Yvette Helin, an artist and costume designer living in New York City.

Pretty cool this new Perrier campaign. Congrats to Ogilvy Paris for the great ad!
